Valentin Schatz Posted July 1, 2007 Share Posted July 1, 2007 (edited) Hallo zusammen, Habe mich nun endlich durchgerungen, einiges von meiner Reise in den Pfingstferien im CPUK Forum zu posten. Leider alles auf Englisch :roll: After the nice but unsuccessfull trips in Coratia I decided to find some moors in Slovenia and have a look there:When I got out of the car close tot he first moor, the vegetation looked very promising already: Especially the Sphagnum was leading me through that area: Typical berries at the edges of moors: And further on, it had rained all through one week before my visit and the area was therefore extremely wet and my shoes got completely sucked through by the water after a few minutes. Slowly reaching the real moor: This little lizard was too slow to escape, it was probably to cold for him that day: Another nice flower: The first moor orchids, probably the same species I had already seen at Amerang Moor in Germany so I knew I was certainly right here :wink: Bored? Let's get to the real material then :lol: I was basically nearly standing on the Pinguicula vulgaris when I suddenly noticed the slight lilac colouration in the grass and nearly broke my neck in a quick move downwards :wink: Although in flower, they were not very large and impossible to see on a distance longer than 4 metres: Interestingly, the whole colony, consisiting of less than 40 adult plants as usual for this species, were grouped around a little bog: It was nearly the same like in Amerang: The P.vulgaris grew very close to a resevoir of water which could keep the ground very wet all year through. The Slovenian ones seemed to be extremely keen of getting as close as possible: Im sorry for the poor flower pictures, for some reason the camera didnt get them sharp that day... Who notices the next CP species on these two pictures here? . . . . . . . Yes, the pond was full of U.minor, not easy to spot if never seen before but as I grow them myself I watched out for them Orchid with P.vulgaris int he background: And only 1 metre away on the other side of the little pond, the next species which I already had missed: The common D.rotundifolia: I noticed that they don't get really large in Slovenia, compared to other sites I had visited. Complete view of the moor: And some more pictures of another moor I visited, which had basically the same setup of plants: I hope I didn't bore all of you too much and would also like to thank the people who provided me with information about possible locations Greetings, Valentin Edited July 1, 2007 by Guest Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
