Alpine Flora


On a walk up to Piatra Mare near Brasov I took these photographs of plants and flowers, on slopes above 1400 but less than 1900 metres. They were taken in the month of June with an abundance of lush vegetation and buzzing with insect life. As you know I have a limited knowledge of botany and would appreciate any help identifying the species below.
