Butterflies photography tours in Bulgaria

Butterflies in Bulgaria are over 214 species. A part of Suha reka is designated as Prime Butterfly area and includes the valley of the Suha River (see map here). The main reason for including the region is the presence of 5 target species, including a great part of the population of Euphydryas maturna in Bulgaria. For the time being, Suha Reka is the only place in the country where the Scarce Fritillary Euphydryas maturna is widely distributed and common from the second half of June till the beginning of July.
