    Nice pics! I especially like the inverts and the frog. And the orchids and the moss. The wasp is a mud dauber.

    Thanks all! Your kind comments make it worth it to spend the time processing and posting the photos.

    Love the way those frogs like to hang out in the pitchers.

    Great pics, thanks for sharing!
    I miss seeing Pogonia, Spiranthes and Calopogon in my "back yard". (I don't live where they grow, but I used to)

    Been awhile since I posted to this thread. I've been keeping busy all summer working on my book with the help of Heli and Wireman and soon I will embark on the most incredible and difficult trip of the summer. Starting tomorrow, Wednesday August 14th, 2013 I will be leaving with Wireman and another friend from Meadowview on a 5 day trip where we will be visiting sites all over North Carolina and one site in South Carolina time permitting. We will see every species of Sarracenia, Dionaea, Pinguicula, and Drosera found in North Carolina plus a few introduced species. Here is a map of our trip beginning and ending in Raleigh with a pit stop back there between the mountains and the coast. The map is only 1mb so don't bother trying to zoom in to get clues as to exactly where these locations are. The points are also in general areas within the counties and not exactly on the location so as to make it more difficult for anyone trying to go to these secret locations. County location is a matter of public knowledge that anyone with basic research skills can attain. So please don't reprimand me for sharing locations because I'm not.

    Anyway, we leave Wednesday morning from Raleigh where we'll be going directly to see S. oreophila at point B, then S. purpurea var. montana and Drosera rotundifolia at point C, then S. jonesii and S. purpurea var. montana at Point D. Then we'll find a hotel for Wednesday night. The next morning we will drive to point E where we will see more S. jonesii and S. purpurea var. montana and Drosera rotundifolia. Then down to South Carolina where we will see S. jonesii at point F. Then back to Charlotte to go to UNC Charlotte for lunch and a quick tour of their CP collection. Finally back to Raleigh for Thursday night. Friday morning we will leave for Croatan National Forest to see S. flava, S. rubra, S. purpurea var. venosa, Dionaea muscipula, Drosera capillaris, Drosera brevifolia, and Drosera intermedia at point K. Then we will go down to our lodging at the beach in Atlantic Beach, NC and relax for the rest of our day. Saturday morning we will return to Croatan to try and find more Sarracenia, including S. leucophylla. Then back to our lodgings in Atlantic Beach for the evening. Sunday morning we will leave our humble beach abode and head to Wilmington to the Stanley Rehder Carnivorous Plant Garden, then off to Columbus County to see S. minor, S. flava, S. purpurea, Drosera filiformis, Drosera capillaris, Drosera brevifolia in Columbus county, then back to Raleigh Sunday evening.
