botanical excursion to jamtal valley

i took part in another botanical excursion today – we went to jamtal valley.
it’s one of the last valleys of tyrol that (nearly) haven’t been influenced by mankind, so we found many protected and rare plants and an almost pristine flora.

jamtal valley is declared a nature reserve – there’s only 3 buildings in an 11km (7 mile) valley, all of which are alpine huts.
we even needed a special permission to drive in some miles…

once again it got obvious how focussed i am on butterflies (and their developmental stages) – i photographed a bunch of cool ones up there!
see for yourself!
