Just hiking around and then this...
We just arrived with the aerial tramway to the top of Semmering, on purpose i left my camera at the parking lot, because it was 13° C - and i concluded that it must be much colder at the mountain top. Well, so much for that. I just came out of the tram wagon, walked for a minute - and this marvelous Carabus auronitens crossed my path - wow!. The metallic colours were so shimmering and sparkling, which unfortunalety can't be seen on this, otherwise ok, IPhone photo.
