What a cute photo ... I think that is what we call horse chestnuts. Great capture Juraj, I'm glad you posted it. We have quite a few of these here, because people like the trees, but they are not native. Are they part of your forests?
Thank you Nawitka, I took the picture on a hike in local mountains (what a trip!). However, it's not horse chestnut, but an oak tree (Fagus Sylvatica?), pretty widespread in Slovakia.
Krásne makro Juraj, získava môj hlas!
Pozdravujem z Košíc, Atti.
Ďakujem Atti a pozdravujem Košice (chodil som tam na gympel) ;)
Svet je malý... na ktorý gympeľ si chodil?
Hi Juraj! I think it is not a Fagus seedling, (Fagus genus is the Beech trees, BTW) and I don't think it's an oak either. I found a picture of a Beech seedling and it looks quite different. My next guess is the Sweet (edible) Chestnut, a member of the Fagaceae family but not a Fagus species.
Atti, GJAK. V čase keď sídlili na Puškinovej.
Nawitka, certainly not oak, my mistake. But it is beech. First of all, my girlfriend, who studies landscaping, said it right away. Second, I think the elevation might be too high for Chestnuts. Finally, see this picture and compare shape of leaves.
Beautiful! Sometimes they are twins?
Thank you VKeith. Obviously, it is possible.
