 The habitat is rich and varied with many of the hay meadows still cut by hand. The remarkable diversity of habitats, the geology and a wide rage of climatic conditions together with a rich plant life has enabled the development of such a large number of butterfly species. It is perfect for those interested in butterfly photography.

Some species are rare or very local –  such as the Gavarnie Blue, Gavarnie Ringlet, False Dewy Ringlet, Pyrenées Brassy Ringlet as well as the striking Apollo or the robust little Duke of Burgundy.
