    1. Comment on Pond turtle South park Sofia yesterday
      Thank you, Ruth!
    2. Thank you very much, Christine!
    3. Although it is relatively common in this place, I would be very, very happy with such encounter! It's always a great pleasure to take photos of such a rare species! Congratulations, Ferdy! Well, I envy you a little ... -:)
    4. Comment on Iris sintenisii 6 days ago
      Nice question, Ferdy!
      It was very funny! All photos uploaded last days were made during a botanical tour in the Eastern Rhodope Mountains. I was the only one with a camera, and I always had to wait for the young and older ladies and men to shoot with their smartphones and it was not until then that my order came. During this time they kept going and I had to hurry to catch up to not miss something interesting.
      This iris is a rare plant, and I was quite excited to capture it, and no matter how ridiculous, I did not pay any attention to the insects on it. It was not until I began to post-process the pictures that I realised what I missed - 5 species of insects on one plant!!! No one of them on focus!
      By the way, looking on the other photo of this species, by Wildflower, there are also 3 insects on it. It seem this flower attracts a lot of different insects.

      Marta, I think this is Cephalanthera longifolia. The elongated leaves are not typical for C.damasonium.

      This is amazing! Being one of the firsts or of a few to photograph a species is really something very special!

      It has been an amazing trip in Eastern Rhodope mountains in South Bulgaria. So many new species for me!
    8. Thank you, Ferdy!

      Stephen, I think it will. not be mistake to identify this beauty as Echinopsis huascha.

      Hi Stephen, the scientific name is highly questionable (see the second link below). According to Catalogue of life 2019 now it is Echinopsis huascha.
      So I don't know which name to use to create the record. There is no Wiki page for neither of those names.http://www.catalogueoflife.org/col/details/species/id/32760f55b42512baa870e65e0b40f253/synonym/4415e1bd79ad4eddb56f199fb1d266e2
