This is Salix caprea. Many thanks to Ivan (Argus) for ID!!
This photo was taken today, during our trek through Beskid Sadecki. This is a prove of incoming spring :)
We started from Szczawnik, went through Pusta Wielka (1060m), Jaworzynka (1001m), Bacowka nad Wierchomla, Runek (1079m), Bukowa, near Kotylniczy Wierch (1931m) and again Szczawnik. This trek took us about 6 hours. The weather was nice in the beginning, in the end it was raining. Over 1000m we could have found snow.
Thanks for visiting.
