[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is probably Senecio nemorensis. Many thanks to Yiannis for ID!!.
This photo was taken on saturday, during our trek through Beskid Zywiecki (this part is sometimes considered as Beskid Makowski).
Unfortunatelly again weather was bad. Almost all June in south of Poland the weather is bad this year. Fortunatelly it wasn't raining during our trek. But because of fog I couldn't have captured any nice landscape.
We started from Stryszawa went through Przelecz Koledowki (809m), near Koledowka (883m), Przelecz Opaczne (879m), Jalowiec (1111m), Przelecz Cicha (776m), near Opusniok (819m) and Solniska (849m) again to Stryszawa.
Thanks for visiting.

Hi Maciej,

The blurry background is putting in evidence the flowers. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Senecio nemorensis flowers. The morning light is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.


To jest na pewno Senecio nemorensis s.l., ze wskazaniem na Senecio ovatus (starzec jajowaty).

Excellent capture of this species unknown for my
TFS, nice WE, Ferran
