This is probably - Cirsium eriophorum. Many thanks to Gerrard (Pitoncle), Ferran (ferranjlloret), Ivan (Argus) for ID!!
Yesterday we were again in Slovakia. This time in Mala Fatra mountains. It's about 3 hours by car from my home - Krakow. Weather was beautiful in the beginning of our trek, but then worse (fortunatelly only a little of rain).
We started from Stara Dolina (700m), went through Sedlo za Kraviarskym (1230m), Kraviarske (1360m), again Sedlo za Kraviarskym, Chrapaky (1417m), Sedlo Bublen (1511m), Pekelnik (1609m), Velky Krivan (1709m) - the highest peak in Mala Fatra, Chata pod Chlebom (1415m), Kopiska (1446m), Sedlo za Hromovym (1606m), Hromove (1636m), Chleb (1646m), again Hromove and Sedlo za Hromovym, Steny - juzny vrchol (1572m), Sedlo v Stenach (1480m), Steny - severny vrchol (1535m), Poludnovy grun (1459m), Chata na Gruni, Chata Vratna and again Stara Dolina.
Mala Fatra is really beautiful and peaceful area.
Thanks for visiting.

Hello Maciek,
A very fine capture of the flower of a species of thistle, that I think is Cirsium vulgare and maybe a subspecies of it.
Excellent sharpness, colours and DOF against a pleasing natural BG, with the Scorpionfly a little bonus!
Thanks and enjoy your Sunday,

Hi Maciej,

The tight frame is putting the flower in evidence. The macro point of view is showing the details and colors of the Cirsium vulgare. The afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Well done, have a nice day.

Très belle macro finement détaillée et délicatement colorée valorisant bien le sujet dans un judicieux cadrage serré.

Wonderful thistle, excellent point of view. regards yiannis
