After 4 days of increasingly difficult walking, yesterday was a rest day. So we did the touristy thing and drove around to the Dixence dam to marvel at its size. (It being the tallest gravity dam in the world). Despite the huge construction work that must have gone on, nature has a way of continuing as if nothing ever happened. I was particularly pleased to capture, and identify, the Queen of Spain fritillary (see first picture). According to my little book, no other fritillary has such large and shiny silver spots on the underside.
