This is probably Ranunculus platanifolius. Many thanks to Anne (anel) for ID!!!
This photo was taken in July, during our trek through Slovakian West Tatras.
We started from Hutianskie Sedlo (950m), went throung Sivy vrch (1805m), Brestova (1934m), Salatin (2048m), Brestova again (1934m), and Chata Zverovka.
Weather was quite good. I think no rain. No high temperature. But a lot of fog and clouds.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciej,
A flower which we can see in Valais too. I think it could be probably Ranunculus platanifolius or a related species. Unfortunately you don't show the leaves of the plant, so it is difficult to identify correctly the flower.
Kind regards

Bonjour Maciej,
très belle composition de ces petites fleurs banches suir ce fonds vert.

Hello Maciej,
With the ID I can not help, but complimenting you with this beautiful capture of Mother Nature, I can certainly! Beautiful is not the best word, it is magnificent!!
I live in a "Lightning belt" And this time of the year thunder storms are more often than wanted, so communication could be a problem for me.

Beautifully captured group of white flowers, tfs.

This is a beautiful white ranunculus! Excellent presentation. regards yiannis

Hi Maciej,

The flowers are well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Ranunculus platanifolius. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Interesting Ranunculus group!
nice capture,

Bonjour Maciej,
Très bonne composition valorisant bien les sujets dans une lumière bien maîtrisée.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hallo Maciek
This tiny white flowers with their yellow anthers is striking and very eye-catching. I really like the fact that all three stages of the flowering cycle is included in this image, from the flower bud to the point where there is no more petals left on the stem. I also like the sunlight in the image very much. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
