Close-up of a Sarracenia flava flower in the Green Swamp near Wilmington, NC, USA, April 28, 1995. The flower's style (the round part that you see) was about 6-7 cm (2.25 inches) across. The parent plant was growing among tall grasses with some scrub and small trees in the area. The soil was damp to the touch and was typical of the acidic sand/peat mix found in the swamp.
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.
