Zadar by night 07.2013

Zadar.by.night.07.2013.www.9a2gb.net (13)Zadar by night 07.2013

Zadar is an ancient city, built in the center of the Croatian Adriatic, full of historical and cultural monuments. It is three thousand years old, a city of old, tumultuous and dynamic history, often destructed, looted, devastated, every time emerging from the ruins stronger, richer and more beautiful. Zadar appeared for the first time in history in the 4th century B.C. as a settlement of the Illyrian tribe of Liburnians – the name Jader was mentioned, and through history it changed into Idassa (Greek source), Jadera (Roman source), DiadoraZara (during Venetian rule and later Italian) up to today’s name of Zadar.

Zadar.by.night.07.2013.www.9a2gb.net (16)Today Zadar is a preserved monument of various historical times and cultures that have placed their boundaries and visible outlines of their urban appearance. During its existence it was for many centuries the home of the Ilyrian Liburni and for 1000 years the capital city of Dalmatia. Rich in history, it is curently a focal point in civilisation, and most of all city with an unquestionable future: its accepted concept of development into an international, Mediterranean and Adriatic metropolis is being realised. It is a city with a rich Croatian national identity created in the present, wich successfully adheres to the newest trends in globalisation and informatisation.

Zatvaranje tradicionalnog, 187. Samoborskog karnevala
Samoborci i njihovi mnogobrojni gosti, jučer su na samoborskog trgu Kralja Tomislava prisustvovali završnoj priredbi zatvaranja tradicionalnog 187. Samoborskog karnevala. Kao i do sada, fiškal je pokušao dati sve od sebe i obraniti inkarnaciju prošlogodišnjih zala, ali njegovo veličanstvo princ Fašnik, osuđen je i pogubljen je u kasnim večernjim satima, vješanjem i paljenjem na lomači. Tužna, ali očekivana sudbina, koja se ponavalja već 187. puta, simbolizirajući naš stari običaj ispraćaja svega lošega u protekloj godini, i vječiti optimizan malog čovjeka u očekivanju boljih dana.

Svježi vrganj - Fresh Boletus from Samobor, CroatiaSvježi vrganj – Fresh Boletus

Fresh Boletus from the forest near Samobor, Croatia. Boletus edulis, commonly known as penny bun, porcino or cep, is a basidiomycete fungus, and the type species of the genus Boletus. The fungus grows in deciduous and coniferous forests and tree plantations, forming symbiotic ectomycorrhizal associations with living trees by enveloping the tree’s underground roots with sheaths of fungal tissue. Prized as an ingredient in various foods, B. edulis is an edible mushroom held in high regard in many cuisines, and is commonly prepared and eaten in soups, pasta, or risotto. The mushroom is low in fat and digestible carbohydrates, and high in protein, vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre.

More photos at Photo Albums page.

Boletus edulis, poznatiji kao vrganj, raste u listopadnim i crnogoričnim šumama i plantažama drveća, na način da formira simbiotske udruge s korjenjem stabala tvoreći podzemne tvorbe gljivičnog tkiva. Vrganj je jestiva gljiva cijenjena kao sastojak u raznim jelima, a obično se priprema i jede kao sastojak juha, tjestenina, ili rižota. Vrganj sadrži vrlo malo masti i ugljikohidrata, dobro je probavljiv, a bogat je bjelančevinama, vitaminima, mineralima i dijetalnim vlakanima. Primjerci na slikama ubrani su 06.10.2012. u šumi u okolici Samobora.

To je prostor između rijeke Mirne na sjeveru i Limskog kanala na jugu nazvan po najvećem naselju Poreču. Vissignanun, Vicinius, Guissignanus, Visignano, Ime Višnjan vjerojatno potječe od latinske riječi Vicinianus što znači u blizini jer je Višnjan u prošlosti bio najbliži posjed Poreča.

Motovun - www.9a2gb.netIstra – Motovun, at August 2012

Motovun is a village in central Istria, Croatia. The population of the village itself is 531, with a total of 983 residents in the municipality (2001); 442 of the residents have Italian as their mother language.

The legend of Veli Jože:
Motovun is known among today’s population of Istria as the city of Veli Jože, the good gentle giant who represents the Croatian people of Istria. The story written by Vladimir Nazor, one of the most important Croatian writers of the 20th century, was a response to the national struggles of the Croats for equality against fascism (1900-1914). The tale is known today throughout Croatia, while the character of Veli Jože (Big Joe) is quite correctly linked with the city.

More photos HERE.

Motovun je općina je u Hrvatskoj, u Istarskoj županiji. Najbolje je sačuvana srednjovjekovna istarska utvrda, koja se razvila na vrhu strmog brežuljka. U prapovijesnim vremenima, ilirska i keltska plemena gradila su svoje utvrde na mjestu današnjeg Motovuna. Ime mu je također keltskog porijekla, a nastalo je od riječi Montona, što znači grad u gori.

Legenda o Velom Joži:
Veli Jože je književno djelo hrvatskog književnika Vladimira Nazora iz 1908. godine. Glavni lik je hrabri i dobri div Jože, “jak kao bik, kuštrave glave”, koji živi u okolici istarskog gradića Motovuna. Knjiga je nastala na temelju narodnih priča i folklornih motiva. To je djelo po kojemu će se prepoznavati Nazorova proza, a koje je on sam smatrao neuspjelim. Veli Jože postao je simbol hrvatske Istre, alegorijska slika nacionalne prošlosti, njezine muke i poniženja, ali i moći i snage kojom se stoljećima opirala odnarođivanju.

Wasp fighting a spider - Osa najeznica u duelu s paukomWasp fighting a spider – Osa najeznica u duelu s paukom

A Spider Wasp (Ichneumonidae Por.) hunting certain kinds of insects, (photo showing a spider paralyzed by a Wasp), laying eggs that feed on hosts tissues. This wasp is very cunning, it approach to prey only when it is completely paralyzed. After a 10 minutes of waiting and checking a spider’s state, a Wasp grasped a spider by the powerful jaws, dragged him over the 1m height wall and took him at the grass to the silence death.

Find more pictures of this exciting duel, HERE.

Osa najeznica (Por. Ichneumonidae) lovi određene vrste insekata (na slici je munjevitim ubodom savladala pauka i paralizirala ga svojim otrovom), u njih leže ličinke koje se hrane njegovim tkivom i na taj način razvijaju na štetu domaćina. Ova osica je vrlo lukava, ne  prilazi pauku sve dok se žrtva potpuno paralizira. U ovom slučaju pauk je bio potpuno paraliziran već nakon 5 minuta, osa ga je zatim uhvatila snažnim čeljustima, vukla ga preko zida visine 1m i odvukla ga u travu, gdje je položila jaja i na taj način, okončavši jedan, započela novi život.

Zelena bogomoljka

Glava im je pomična, s velikim izbočenim očima, ticala duga. Prvi prsni kolutić im je jako produljen i omogućava pomicanje glave u svim smjerovima. Izvanredno su dobro prilagođene okolišu, mogu mijenjati boju tijela što ih, povezano dugotrajnom nepokretnošću, čini vrlo teško uočljivim. Duljina tijela im je najčešće između 40 i 80 mm.
