Photographer's Note

Outside it's - 5°C, so back to summer ...

Today something quite different - several panicels of a Phyteuma, a flower growing predominantly in European mountains in an altitude of more than 600 metres. It has 40 - 45 species. This one is Phyteuma betonicifolium with a hight of about 50 cm and I think it has a fascinating bloom, more precisely a panicle with a lot of single blooms. I found them in the alpine meadows of Montafon valley in the Austrian state Vorarlberg in an altitude of about 1700 metres.
In German we call it Teufelskralle (~ devil's claw) because of the form of the single blooms.
