    Stew McPherson Fl. Panhandle Tour

    Hello All,

    Recently I had the pleasure of showing Stewart McPherson some CP sites in the Fl. Panhandle, including the famous Tate's Hell Preserve, known for it's outstanding Sarracenia leucophylla colonies. Here's a few photos to wet your whistle... ; ) More to follow, along with a new HD video of the adventure!

    Here's Peucetia viridans aka. the Green Lynx spider enjoying a large bee it captured while hiding just below the pitcher rim. Interestingly, each Sarracenia colony had it's own resident spider.





    Here's a lovely mantid robbing a pitcher of it's contents through a nicely made entrance in the pitcher's side.



    Some ants enjoying their nectar feast on S. flava var. atropurpurea. Note the extra wide tent-shaped lid.



    Here's Stew taking a few shots of a gorgeous colony of S. rubra gulfensis that Randy Zerr was kind enough to show us. Thanks again, Randy!



    Stay tuned, more adventure to follow.

    Happy Growing,

    Brian

    Awesome photos! I always find it interesting the numbers of arthropod predators that live around sarrs whether in nature or our own collections.
