    Nice pics, CPs look great in the wild. I myself have went to a valley of Darlingtonia a few times before. I have some pictures if people want to see them.

    PAK,
    Great pics - thanks for sharing!!

    Fire ants - while it was good for you to have the 'experience' of fire ant anger - for the 'real' experience, you've got to accidentally stand in one of their piles and casually have a conversation w/ one of your friends. By the time one of them decides to sting you, it will have a few hundred / thousand of it's buddies in close proximity. When one stings, it sends a message to all of the others to get busy and do the same. That is the true fire ant experience! Now, go back & do it the right way!

    Also, you might want to check the ID on your S. alata, I suspect that it is S. rubra ssp. rubra ...
    All the best,

    Oooops...I MEANT rubra. lol I DO know the difference but I do that almost every time. Its like CP dyslexia. I always say alata instead of rubra. I'm glad someone was paying attention and caught that. lol

    Umm...don't think I'd want to STAND on a mound. We did kick some open and they just swarmed out. I expect that's how I had a few get up my jeans. Prolly got onto my shoe and I didn't know it. I think I ended up with about 5 stings. That was enough for me!

    KruegerSC4...yeah, everyone here loves pics so you should post some.

    Here's a few of my photos from seeing Darlingtonia in the wild. I've been there three or four times. Should I make a new thread with the rest of the pictures?

    WOW. I don't mind if you leave them here but if you want to make a new topic, that's fine too. Up to you.
