Losenheim - Fadensattel 24.5.2019

A morning walk from Losenheim to the Fadensattel

Soon after the carpark in Losenheim near the beck: Ramsons (Allium ursinum) in abundance, in full bloom.

This dew pond has seen better days.

Schneeberg 

After the huge lots of snow last winter, even at the end of May there is residual snow down to 1.200 m asl.

View back to the valley with Losenheim, Puchberg in the background. 

Elder-flowered orchid (Dactylorhiza sambucina) in abundance also this year, but not as beautiful as last year. In places with much winter snow remaining for a long time, there are only buds, in other, early snow-free  places, where the sun shone whole April, they are dried up or withered. Still enough for some pictures.

I descend a small bit into the narrow ravine behind the Almreserlhaus, where thousands of kingcups can be seen from afar by their yellow refulgence.
