Bonjour Roberto,
Ai manqué quelques unes de tes dernières images.Je voyage entre le Valais et Berne. Cette espèce est une dont il me manque encore une bonne image. La tienne est excellente de tous points de vue. La présentation verticale correspond à ce que tu as vu, on aurait pu en faire un cadrage horizontal aussi.
Bonne fin de semaine
Amitiés
Anne
