This flower is called "Devil's Claw". The extracts of these kind of flowers are used for the preparation of natural remedies, to be used especially in case of inflammation or muscle pain. This photo was taken in the month of July during a circular hike in Val Gardena, one of the many valleys of the Dolomites, starting from the village of Selva di Val Gardena. It is not common to see this flower in the Dolomites, but in this case I was lucky as it was very close to the path.
