D. intermedia in habitat (SE North Carolina, USA)

Drosera intermedia in the Green Swamp near Wilmington, NC, USA, April 28, 1995. These plants and several others (same species) were growing in partial shade with other amongst some grasses (visible in the photo) about 2m from the edge of a pond. The soil was wet and also supported a healthy colony of Utricularia. The acidic soil is typical of that in the swamp -- fine sand mixed with organic matter.

I took this photo with a Minolta Maxxum 7000 and an inexpensive set of macro lenses on Fuji 100 film. The negative was scanned directly onto a Kodak Photo CD.
