Beside the main roads

Off the main roads are the best ways to find fallow grounds. So we found in Istria a beautiful orchid meadow on a clay pigeon shooting range. Obviously, there is enough mowing throughout the year to benefit the occurrence of the „Pink butterfly orchid / Anacamptis papilionacea“. The shallow light of the setting sun was […]

However, only this lady, who is already a little bit elderly, remains seated. Although the wings were already a bit battered, it […]
