southern festoon

southern festoon

For me, the „Southern festoon / Zerynthia polyxena“ is one of the most beautiful butterflies in our country. And when I can find him in new places, I’m always particularly happy. Für mich ist der Osterluzeifalter einer der schönsten Schmetterlinge bei uns. Und wenn ich ihn dann auch noch an neuen Plätzen finden kann, ist die […]

orchid meadow

orchid meadow

It is always gratifying to see that there are still meadows where nature can be nature for you. Also this time I was able to find some such meadows during our vacation in Istria. The green-veined orchid (Anacamptis morio) in a wide variety of colors and shapes can grow there relatively undisturbed – just a beautiful sight.

in the woodlands

On a sunny afternoon I went looking for a nice spot with wood anemones in the Upper Austrian „Mühlviertel“. I found what I was looking for along the road through the „Naarntal“. It was a nice little spot with lots of plants stretching their blossoms towards the sun. An einem sonnigen Nachmittag machte ich mich im […]

in the forest of hollowroots

On a Friday afternoon, a dear friend showed me this beautiful forest. Even if the „hollowroot“ is not a particularly unusual plant, the amount there made this place something special. And when the sun was right in the evening, the day was perfect. It’s just a pity that I can’t convey the scent with this picture. An […]

A visit to the Donauauen is always worthwhile at this time of year. Between thousands of snowdrops there are also countless liverworts to be found.

Spring season

Spring season

In some places in the alluvial forests, the white flowers of the spring snowflakes appear like a white carpet. Even if the temperature is a bit cooler now, spring can no longer be stopped. An manchen Stellen in den Auwäldern wirken die weißen Blüten der Frühlings-Knotenblumen wie ein weißer Teppich. Auch wenn die Temperatur jetzt wieder ein […]

hidden in the bushes

Eastern cyclamen / Cyclamen coum are not native to us, but there are a few places where they are growing in the wild. Although their color is very striking, they are not so easy to find in the bushes. And they are not easy to photograph there either. Die Frühlings-Alpenveilchen / Cyclamen coum sind bei uns zwar […]

Lake Neusiedl

Lake Neusiedl

Lake Neusiedl is worth a visit at any time of the year. Today there was no special sunset atmosphere. Instead, the colors of the sky were reflected in the areas that had already thawed. Der Neusiedler See ist zu jeder Jahreszeit einen Besuch wert. Heute gab es zwar keinen besondere Sonnenuntergangsstimmung.Dafür spiegelten sich die Farben des […]
