We begin the final part of the tour through the pitcher plant bog that was actually quite dry.

Love the orchids intermingled with the pitcher plants in this one.

sarracenia
Pitcher plants certainly have their own personality.

colicroot
Love the unassuming yellow colicroot, Aletris lutea.

flowers
And the beautiful pitcher plant flowers…

greenlynx
I also love finding the green lynx spiders tucked under and between leaves. They can be finicky to photograph that’s for sure!

me
I really should stop and take photos of myself more often. I try to snap one of Chris whenever we are out but rarely do I get one of myself. A few years ago I did self portraits for awhile and they were fun but I was definitely self-conscious.

  1. I love the picture of the “Erythrina herbacea, coralbean leaves.” It’s so earthy and subtly gorgeous. I know I feel a little strange doing the self timer thing, I usually make my friends or brothers come along on nature walks if I want to capture any shots of myself.
