[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Gentiana cruciata is rather rare plant in Polish flora, occurs mostly in xerothermic grasslands.

Latin name cruciata derives from leaf orientation when you are watching on the plant down along the stem. You can see cross of leafs then.

Bonjour Michal,
Bien que la profondeur de champ ne soit pas excellente le sujet est relativement bien valorisé sous un angle de vue intéressant.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Michal,
A natural picture of this interesting Gentiana species. I have shown one in the past on TN which had 5 petals instead of four like on your picture. Fine decentred picture, a plant not so easy to photograph.
Kind regards
