    De Soto National Forest (S. alata, S. psittacina) DUW

    Hola everyone! Haven't been able to post much lately because my internet access is extremely limited (just my phone unless I drive to find wi-fi), but this past weekend I went to De Soto National forest to check out the CPs and look for herps. I checked two new species off my list, Sarracenia psittacina and Drosera filiformis, which were awesome to see in the wild. Besides that, I went and checked out the apparently famous Buttercup Flats within the forest, which is supposed to be the largest stand of Sarracenia in the world at 100 acres or something like that. The meadow was filled with those two sarrs, and the ubiquitous Drosera rotundifolia as well (that one grows everywhere, even in dry areas).

    I'm still on the lookout for S. flava, S. leucophylla, and S. minor to photograph, so I'll have to keep searching! Do they prefer a different type of habitat than S. alata and S. psittacina? Anyway, I'm sure you all just to see the photos, so here you go:

    Wow! Those are some great shots. I really like that alata with the black veins - so droolworthy

    Very nice, I second the drool on the black-veined alata. Nice copperhead too, I've always wanted one.

    Wow, very nice shots. I especially like the yellow pitchers with red inside and the second to last "two-tone pitcher" pic with red pitchers with lighter color on the lids. Thank you for sharing those.

    Some really nice Sarrs there, I've got some hopefully very dark alatas coming up from seed right now. Of course, I'm a huge snake lover, so no more explanation needed.

    wow. such amazing shots and such amazing focus! you have an amazing skill for capturing things in-situ. those alata are beautiful, definitely deepened my appreciation for them, which was initially at zero.
