Cima Palon Prealpi vicentine
Primula auricula, often known as Auricula, mountain cowslip or bear's ear (from the shape of its leaves), is a species of primrose that grows on basic rocks in the mountain ranges of central Europe, including the western Alps, Jura, the Vosges, the Black Forest and the Tatra mountains. The leaves are obovate and stalkless, with a cartilaginous edge, all growing in a basal rosette. The yellow flowers grow in clusters on 5-20 cm long stalks.
A recent study split the species into two, Primula lutea and P. auricula, with the former being found further south and east (Apennines, Carpathians, Balkans, and the southern and eastern Alps). Prior to this study, P. lutea had been considered synonymous with P. auricula. Other synonyms of P. auricula include P. balbisii and P. ciliata.

Ciao Fabrizio,oramai queste composizioni si riconoscono anche senza leggere l'autore,c'e' la tua firma scritta anche se non c'e',davvero bellissima,una della migliori quanto a scenario,forse un po' sottoesposta ma serviva per bilanciare il giallo al sole.Buona serata,Luciano

Wonderful plant and habitat photo. regards yiannis

Hi Fabrizio,

Nice evening!

Ciao Fabrizio,
altra immagine di grande impatto con un punto di ripresa da vertigini e bellissimi colori saturati, magnifica composizione che esalta questa stupenda primula, anche con il tocco, probabilmente imprevisto, del minuscolo insetto.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona serata

Hello Fabrizio,
This one is beautiful. Lovely colors; fresh and vibrant. Crisp clear image. Very well done.
Best regards Siggi

Ciao Fabrizio,
Il POV scelto esalta le altezze e i verticalismi tipici dell'alta montagna ed il risultato è molto molto bello. Bella la primula e belli i suoi piccoli ospiti.

molto bella la prospettiva ed il modo come hai scelto di presentare il fiore, molto bello lo sfondo, complimenti Fabrizio !

anche il piccolo insetto aggiunge un tocco in piu- di bellezza alla foto,

ciao, tino

Ciao Fabrizio, altro grande scatto con un pov veramente fantastico. Un saluto, Paolo

Hello Fabrizio,
Very beautiful from a great POV. Interesting that these flowers specifically grow on limestone or dolomite which is clearly visible here and which is rich in calcium carbonate and trace elements but not in other nutrients. Very pleasant image to view.

Bonsoir Fabrizio,
Un angle de vue bien particulier, et une fleur que l'on ne voit plus si souvent. Primula auricula, comme de l'or contre le ciel bleu. Une imge originale et bien réalisée.
Un grand merci
