Dragonfly close up image. A dragonfly is an insect belonging to the order Odonata, infraorder Anisoptera (from Greek ἄνισος anisos, “unequal” and πτερόν pteron, “wing”, because the hindwing is broader than the forewing). Adult dragonflies are characterized by large, multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong, transparent wings, sometimes with coloured patches, and an elongated body. Dragonflies can be mistaken for the related group, damselflies (Zygoptera), which are similar in structure, though usually lighter in build; however, the wings of most dragonflies are held flat and away from the body, while damselflies hold their wings folded at rest, along or above the abdomen. Dragonflies are agile fliers, while damselflies have a weaker, fluttery flight. Many dragonflies have brilliant iridescent or metallic colours produced by structural colouration, making them conspicuous in flight. An adult dragonfly’s compound eyes have nearly 24,000 ommatidia each. (Wikipedia)

Alpine cottages and cheese in Sauris

Alpine Cottages – cheese. Some days spent to discover the Alpine cottages in Sauris. Sauris is situated within the Carnia mountain area of Friuli, in the Lumiei Valley (Val Lumiei) of the Carnic Alps, northwest of the Monte Bìvera massif.  It is located about 60 kilometres northwest of the provincial capital Udine and 120 kilometres  northwest of Trieste. Sauris is part of the Alpine pearls cooperation for sustainable tourism.  small location such as Sauris can actually boast such a wealth of top quality local products. The culinary tradition, the rare peculiarities that nature offers us, such as the purity of the water and air, as well  as the passion that producers put into their work are successful ingredients that lead to the acknowledgement and appreciation of cold meats, cheeses, beer, herbs, vegetables and small fruits of Sauris well beyond local boundaries. The itinerary develops north-west of Col Gentile, along gentle slopes mostly occupied by rangelands. They are crossed by a series of tracks, partly of them asphalt, serving the several operative alm complexes in the area. Thanks to these useful tracks, it’s possible to cover this itinerary that allows you to discover these pastures, in an open and tranquil environment.
The pasturing activity is of great importance, other than in the rural economy, in the mountain territory’s ordinary maintenance.  During the walking is possible to see a typical building named stavoli: they are rural constructions in wood and stone used for storing hay and sheltering livestock. The cheese named “Çuç di Mont” is protected by Slowfood together with “Scuete Fumate”.
