name of thread is just stupid, so I'm not alloho

btw. nice black-orange rohace
Aan I recognized my mistake very soon after I created the thread so I allowed to post photos a week. Unfortunately only the original name can be seen. Photos a week is nothing specific in number, so you can post photos aswell :)
PS: I didn´t want to create "per post" thread to avoid spamming this forum only with photos from Slovakia, as it didn´t have to remain attractive.

Dolina Zeleného Plesa (Valley of the Green Lake) situated on the edge of High Tatras Range. On the bottom of the picture you can see Zelene pleso (Green Lake). Even in 18th century it was common known and believed myth that this lake is connected with sea through it´s bottom and this theory was said to be proved when wrecks of old skunner were found in it..

On the image you can see part of Ostra mountain situated in the vast range called Velka Fatra and in the background covered with the snow is the main ridge and of this beautiful range with the highest point called Ostredok. Velka Fatra is especially known for a high concentration of wild animals, mainly bears, wolfes and deers because it´s highest points are located quite far from the nearest towns or villages. So it´s a true slovak wilderness. And my experience with it last year was in this way when I met a baby bear :) but was very lucky to not meet his mother.
