Sorrel Flower, Białowieża Forest - BELARUS - UNESCO #33
One more card from the Białowieża Forest, a UNESCO World Heritage Site divided between Belarus and Poland, this time not with a wild animal but with the beautiful Oxalis flower (also known as wood sorrel). Thank you very much Igor for another beautiful card for my collection, Białowieża Forest will definitely on my route if I ever visit Belarus. This postcard took 13 days to arrive!
Situated on the watershed of the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea, this immense forest range, consisting of evergreens and broad-leaved trees, is home to some remarkable animal life, including rare mammals such as the wolf, the lynx and the otter, as well as some 300 European Bison, a species which has been reintroduced into the park.
