Field of flowers

The Marsh gladiolus, also sword lily (Gladiolus palustris), grow only in wet meadows and unfortunately have become very rare.

How long they will delight us with their colourful appearance depends on us. Die Sumpf-Siegwurzen, auch Sumpf-Gladiolen (Gladiolus palustris), […]

The Adriatic Lizard Orchid (Himantoglossum adriaticum) is one of the most impressive orchids in Austria for me. Like little males, the individual flowers are „hanging“ on the inflorescence. Seen from a distance, the tongues look like little curls. The plants can also get a bit bigger. I’ve seen plants that reach up to my waist […]

Love at the first sight

Only the visit of friends from Linz gave me the possibility to see and photograph common hamsters. And I immediately fell in love with it – for hours I could watch them disappear in one hole and come out the next. From time to time I also released the shutter 🙂 Erst der Besuch von […]

Pretty in pink

A few days ago, it finally worked out. The weather, the development status of the flowers and the possibility of taking time for an excursion have all fitted together. Thanks to a tip from a friend I could photograph liverleaf in pink. Vor wenigen Tagen hat es endlich geklappt. Die Witterung, der Entwicklungsstand der Blümchen […]

This year, some spring flowers began to bloom at the beginning of February. On a sunny Sunday afternoon we found a small field with „Winter aconite/ Eranthis hyemalis“. Before the first clouds darkened the sky and the flowers closed their blossoms, I could take some pictures. In diesem Jahr fingen einige Frühlingsblumen bereits Anfang Februar […]
