Close up of Sarracenia flava in habitat (SE North Carolina, USA)

Sarracenia flava in the Green Swamp near Wilmington, NC, USA, April 28, 1995. The plant was growing among tall grasses in full sun in a stand of S. flavas perhaps 100 pitchers strong. The soil was damp to the touch and was typical of the acidic sand/peat mix found in the swamp. I also found Drosera, Dionaea, Pinguiculas, more S. flava, and S. purpurea within 10-20m.

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