Lake Almsee abstract (II)

By bliba  
Lake Almsee
The Lake Almsee and the Tote Gebirge in the background offer a fascinating, wonderful landscape. But not only because of this beautiful scenery the area around the Lake Almsee has been declared a nature reserve. Islands, muddy surfaces and the strongly sectioned vegetation belt with the adjacent wetlands offer ideal habitats for a species-rich world of birds; siltation areas and wet meadows are preferred breeding and feeding grounds. Besides a species-rich fauna we can also observe a varied flora around the Lake Almsee. Particularly interesting is the common sundew, a carnivorous plant. The ¬“swimming island¬” is another one of a kind of Lake Almsee: it consists in a driftwood mass covered by cotton grass, sundew and small spruces and birches.

thanks for looking LARGE

Very good mirroring of the mountains, Oliver, suggesting a very calm (and cold and clear) day.

The snow-capped mountains make it just that much better Oliver.
