Poland in photo riddles

Hint: I mentioned I saw several churches with a donation request and postcards around. Most of these churches were shut when we visited them, we could only enter the lobby (whatever it is called in the church in English) and peek through the stained glass of the closed door. Postcards were in the lobby.

My guess is that the postcards can be bought for people to send to their family/friends etc, or perhaps kept as a souvenir, and there is a donation box for people to leave their money in when the church is closed.

What public institution is housed in that structure?

Strażnica w Ustrzykach Górnych.
Border guard building in Ustrzyki Górne.

Yes, border guard headquarters. Good. No hints necessary.

Postcards are for people who spare a donation - you can take a postcard if you throw sth into the slot.

What is this place?

Roof of the Biblioteka Narodowy ?

Memorial, but not gardens. Hint: There is a square concrete block in each "box." When you enlarge, what can you see on the foreground one?

Sorry, cms, we are talking Bieszczady Mountains, not Warsaw. :):)

Can you see that shadow in the air? What was it?

I did wonder if it was part of a cemetery as I can see a star ( Soviet ?) on that first box. I don't think the star has 6 points from what I can see, but I'm on a mobile and it's not that clear when I enlarge picture. A bird in the second picture ? Eagle? Or am I supposed to be looking in the clouds?

Yes, Soviet and Polish cemetery in Baligród, for soldiers killed in the war against UPA.

Not eagle but yes, that`s the shadow in the riddle.

Sorry, no vulture. I would have been extremely lucky if it was cause vultures rarely appear in Poland.

That's because they taste just like chicken.
How about a hawk
OP pawian 161 | 9,971

No, hawk, either, Nor a falcon or a condor.

Sorry, no. But I will reward your efforts which are greatly appreciated.
Hint - it is not a bird at all.

I can't see it that well on my phone, but it doesn't look to be a kite or a hang glider.........

Hint - it is a living creature.

It looks like the tail fluke of a giant whale preparing to dive deep back into the forested mountain after coming up for air....

I like it, sounds so poetic. And whales are such romantic animals. Thanks.
Unfortunately, that was another, quite common representative of animal kingdom.
On second thoughts and a hint - its exact species isn`t so common in Poland. So far I have taken pics of only 3 of them since the beginning of digital photography. In my case, 2005.

If it's not a bird, then there is only bats or insects which fly. Bats aren't usually out in the day, plus it looks too large to be a bat. Wrong part of the world for large bats e.g fruit bats

If not a bat, what is left then?

some kind of flying bug very close to the lens? Don't ask me about the species, I'm not a varmint specialist
OP pawian 161 | 9,971

A kind of flying object but not close, about 2,3 meters from the camera. Exact species is not required. General one is enough.

In the meantime:

This species is requred:

A skunk jumping in fright?
OP pawian 161 | 9,971
24 Jul 2019 #2,907
By skunk you mean this stinking one?
But we have already established that only two flying animals are possible - bats and insects. And we already excluded bats.

The family is Boletaceae, indeed. But which one? There are different species in the family.

I'm not familiar with European species, but as a wild guess: Birch Bolete (Leccinum scabrum).
