 Larches finally have put on their fall colours.
Pictures taken near 'Schermoos', Jenesien

But what's the matter with this dandelion, very solitary and completely off season?

Bolzano - Eisack River

 The Eisack/Isarco River in Bolzano, just after the Loreto bridge. Rapids on the one side (image above) - quiet like a pond on the other side (image below).

In between I caught this heron, a rare species to be seen in Bolzano.

In springtime you can observe here various families of ducks - female ducks with their ducklings at the first outings in the river, a veritable kinderstube for these tiny youngsters.

Bolzano/Bozen - Remembering the Old Theater

Exhibition on the Old Theater (more ...).
The old theater had a rather short life: opened in 1918 it fell in ruins after bombardements in WWII (1943)
