Copper-colored Sarracenia flava in habitat (SE North Carolina, USA)

A small group of Sarracenia flava in the Green Swamp near Wilmington, NC, USA, April 28, 1995. I noticed the coppery color in several other flavas in the area. The plant was growing in soil damp to the touch typical of the acidic sand/peat mix found in the swamp.

I took this photo with a Minolta Maxxum 7000 and on Kodak Ektar 25 film. The negative was scanned directly onto a Kodak Photo CD.
