As you can see there is also still lots of old snow remaining and since temperatures stay low this will thaw slowly.  For comparison: the following image of the same area (different perspective) is from about a month earlier (first of May) in 2007.

Usually the last snow on the Feldberg vanishes some time in June but this year it will most likely remain till July.
