Photographer's Note

There would be many things to say on the composition of this photograph. I'll be briefe as usual. ;-))
Lovely small village of Balagna like already known as with the photograph of MURO, AVAPESSA (65 inhabitants – 265 m of altitude) is nested at mountainside, surrounded by oaks and olive-trees. The red tasks that you see at the feet of the trees are nets posed on the ground to collect olives because Balagna is an area considered for its olive's oil. A fair of the olive-tree takes place each year at MONTEGROSSO, a nearby village.
The branch of tree is that of a white oak whose sheets are corroded this year by an invasion of silk worm. The disease reaches the stage of their transformation into million small butterflies. Fortunately the trees don't decay after their passage.

I hope you will like.
