as a moderator for TN I am sorry but your horse classes as domesticated as I think you will see from this excerpt for the book of Wiki.
The Konik is a Polish horse breed descending from very hardy horses from the Biłgoraj region. These horses had a predominantly dun colour, but also black and chestnut horses were present in the population.[4] Some researchers claim these foundation animals were hybrids with wild horse breeding that had been sold to farmers by the zoo in Zamość in 1806, which were bred to local domesticated draft horses.[4] However, genetic studies now contradict the view that the Konik is a surviving form of Eastern European wild horse, commonly called the tarpan, nor is it closely related to them. The Konik shares mitochondrial DNA with many other domesticated horse breeds and their Y-DNA is nearly identical.[5][6]

During World War I, these horses were important transport animals for Russian and German troops and were called Panje horses.[4] In 1923, Tadeusz Vetulani, an agriculturalist from Kraków, started to get interested in the Panje horses, a landrace of Biłgoraj and coined the name “Konik” (Polish for “small horse”), which is now established as the common name for the breed. During the 1920s, several public and private studs were created to conserve this animal.[4] In 1936, Vetulani opened a Konik reserve in the Białowieża Forest. He was convinced that if horses were exposed to natural conditions, they would redevelop their original phenotype.[4] While Vetulani's experiments are well-known and widely publicized,[7][8] his stock actually had only a minor influence on the modern Konik population.[4] However, World War II marked the end of Vetulani’s "breeding back" project. His stock was moved to Popielno, where they continued to live in semiferal conditions. Popielno became the breed’s main stud during the 1950s, but the herd was also preserved by buying animals from Germany.[4]

Between the two world wars, the German brothers Heinz and Lutz Heck crossed stallions of Przewalski's horse with mares of the Konik horse, as well as mares of other breeds such as the Dülmen pony, Gotland pony, and the Icelandic horse, to create a breed resembling their understanding of the tarpan phenotype. The result is called the Heck Horse.[9] Other breeders crossed Koniks with Anglo Arabians or the Thoroughbred to increase their quality as a riding horse.[4]

Hi John an intresting set of spring woodland inhabitants.
1st to identification
1) is a Hybrid form of Primula vulgaris (primrose) yes I know it is not all Yellow but Primula's hybridise very easliy with other members of the family with the help of the local bees, I am forever weeding out the multicoloured one that grow up in my native woodland garden.
2) The Puple flower is an early purple orchid Orchis maculata

3) the Myosttis is nicely framed but the flowers seem to be in front of the focus point. I sugest the use of single point focus to allow you lock your focus on the front of the flower instead of the leaves behind
4)the Orange tip male is very nicely caught with it seeming to be well in focus and a good seperation with it and the well out of focus background, the best photo of the set, maybe a touch of burn tool of hightlight reduction on the white to tone them back a just a little.
5) the Lycaena helle , not a species I am familiar with the butterfly its self not quiet sharp and the flower is completly over exposed, did you use flash to expose this image? , if so next time reduce the power of the flask or expose image for the flower then use shodow and highlight type tool to bring the exposure up on the butterfly.
Thank you for sharring yours Robert

Hi Dietrich,
Gratulation zu dieser Spezies, einen Langen Blaupfeil habe ich noch niemals zuvor gesehen und ich bin begeistert.
Wie kann man diese Tiere nur bestimmen - zumal wenn man noch nicht mal den Namen zuvor gehört hat?!?
Das finde ich stets toll - wie Ihr Euch alle so sicher mit der Bestimmung seid.
Ich suche immer das halbe Internet ab - besonders die Kleinlibellen machen mir da Kopfzerbrechen.
Also - vielen Dank für diesen seltenen Augenschmauss.
Liebe Grüße

I never had the chance to see such a Burnet, I realy don't know where to go to find some of these beautiful moths.

Ooooohhhh, Dietrich, was für ein wundervoller Moment, ich bin total begeistert.
Die frisch geschlüpfte hätte ich zwar für eine blau-grüne Mosaikjungfer gehalten, aber ich hab' leider bislang kaum eine Großlibelle beim Schlüpfen beobachten dürfen, daher auch nicht allzu viel Ahnung. Und eine schwarze Heidelibelle hab' ich auch erst ein einziges Mal zu Gesicht bekommen - ich muss mal wieder diese Moorlandschaft besuchen, vielleicht hab' ich nochmal Glück.
Also - nochmal vielen Dank, dieses Bild ist fantastisch und gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut.
Danke und liebe Grüße aus dem Allgäu

Merhaba my friend Bayram,
I hope you had a fantastic trip in June/July and I have to look at your shots during the last two months to see what you have done during my summer-abstinence here on TN.
This big rabbit is wonderful, I haven't seen such a big one in free nature for years now.
We only have smaller ones here in my area, but they are shy and not often seen.
Excellent work, I like it very much.
Thanks and have a good start into the new week.
Warm regards, selamlar
