thank you for your visit and kind words! A pleasure to show you an image from Romania, I went there this summer for the first time, and I can say now that I love your country, its friendly people, its magnificent nature. There are a few more to come.
The answer to same curiosity of a feeling heart: When I tried to free that poor beetle it tourned out to be stiff and dead already. So, in order to cheer you up a little bit, I am adding another picture of the Alpine longicorn: a lively couple seen in July 2009 on a hot sunny day at high noon in the Vienna Woods. Alpine longicorns in love. When I was up in the Romanian Carpathian mountains this year, that was much later in the year ...
With thanks and all my best wishes to you,
