purple cyclamen

purple cyclamen

When the scent of the Alpine cyclamen/ Cyclamen purpurascens flows through the forest, autumn is not far away. With the right light and a good location, they also invite you to photographic gimmicks with reflections and colors. Wenn der Duft der Alpenveilchen/ Cyclamen purpurascens durch den Wald strömt, ist der Herbst nicht mehr weit. Bei […]

fatal beauty

fatal beauty

Every year I look forward to meeting this dangerous plant. And when it takes place as surprisingly as it does here, I am even more pleased. Of course, the „round-leaved sundew / Drosera rotundiflora“ is only dangerous for insects 😉 Jedes Jahr freue ich mich aufs neue über eine Begegnung mit dieser gefährlichen Pflanze. Und wenn […]

Dark Green Fritillary

Dark Green Fritillary

The „Dark Green Fritillary /Argynnis aglaja “ is not yet one of the rare butterflies. But it was only this year that the cold, wet weather made it possible for me to be able to take pictures. Der „Große Perlmuttfalter / Argynnis aglaja“ gehört noch nicht zu den seltenen Schmetterlingen. Aber die Möglichkeit ihn in aller Ruhe […]

geranium argus

geranium argus

  Better not start a day 🙂 Right next to the parked car I found the first „Geranium argus/ Eumedonia eumedon“ in the middle of the flowers of the crane’s bill in the parking lot. Thanks to the cool, cloudy weather, they were also very sluggish and could be photographed extensively. The special thing about this […]

Cranberry fritillary

Cranberry fritillary

The Cranberry fritillary / Boloria aquilonaris occurs near raised moss. The caterpillar feeds on the cranberry plant. Unfortunately, since these raised moss are becoming increasingly rare, it is also increasingly difficult to find this butterfly. I was very happy when we were able to find a considerable number of these butterflies in a moor that […]

violet limodore

I have never seen the blossoming of the „Violet limodore / Limodorum abortivum“ in the Lobau in Vienna as splendidly as this year. Obviously, the longer cool weather in early spring could not harm it and the humidity in May was even good. With the warmth in June it finally came to full bloom – […]

spring evening

spring evening

At the end of a typical May afternoon this year, with stormy winds and thunderstorm, the cloud cover opened again shortly before sunset and bathed the landscape in glorious evening light. Am Ende eines typischen Mainachmittags in diesem Jahr, mit stürmischem Wind und gewittrigem Regenschauer, riss die Wolkendecke kurz vor Sonnenuntergang noch einmal auf und […]

Orchid meadow

Orchid meadow

This year some orchid meadows were an unbelievable sight. There were different types of orchids in an unusually large number at the same time. Above all, the number of „early spider orchid / Ophrys sphegodes“ was particularly pleasing. Ein unglaublicher Anblick bot sich in diesem Jahr auf manchen Orchideenwiesen. Bunt gemischt standen dort gleichzeitig verschiedene Orchideenarten in ungewohnt großer […]

in all its glory

in all its glory

Because of the persistent cool weather in April, the „Green-veined orchid/ Anacamptis morio“ is also presented a little late. So I was only able to photograph them a few days ago on a trip to Burgenland in the most beautiful evening light. Wegen der anhaltenden kühlen Witterung im April präsentiert sich auch das „Kleine Knabenkraut/ […]

days of springtime

days of springtime

The spring days can still be counted on one hand this year, depending on the weather. But there were still a few moments in which spring fever awoke. An Orange tip (Anthocharis cardamines) on a Dwarf bearded iris (Iris pumila) should be such a moment. Die Frühlingstage kann man in diesem Jahr wetterbedingt noch an einer […]
