The woodland floors of the high Karst are carpeted with flowers at the moment. All the above are the typical early plants that exploit the sunlight available at this time of year, before the trees put their leaves on. Took these pics today on the Slovenian Karst (all in the same 10 or so square metres). Botany was thus the main interest, although I also had Black and Grey-headed Woodpecker in the woodland, along with other commoner species.
