|Here are some pictures of Sempervivum calcareum that I photographed on the Rocher du Caire (altitude 777 m) above Remuzat, Drôme, France, July 14, 2014.
Rocher du Caire is known to be a strong watching Griffon vultures point that it was reintroduced a few years successfully. This is a very accessible unique perspective by a small road. Just 15 minutes walk to get there
Tourists therefore look to the sky to see the vultures and I look at my feet to photograph that no one is watching: beautiful groups Sempervivum calcareum !

with Sedum acre
We continue on a ridge to the mountain Le Devès (altitude 1048 m). The walk is very easy and rises gradually.
After 10 minutes, you begin to encounter groups of Sempervivum calcareum more dense along the ridge.
After a moment, there are thousands of Sempervivum, 10,000 .... 20,000 ... 30,000, I don't know !
Some groups of plants are green, others red. It depends on the food and water they have at their disposal

|Olivier, thank you so much for the wonderful photos. Like Julia said, it such a privilege to seem them growing in their natural habitat.
I will create a new entry in the database:
Sempervivum calcareum from Remuzat area of Drôme, France Hen and Chick (Sempervivum calcareum from Remuzat area of Drome, France)
I will add the rest of the photos once the database does an update on this new entry. I can take about 10 to 30 minutes for the update.
