    Return to the bog of purp!

    Some of you people may remember this thread:

    http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...ht=s.+purpurea


    Anyways, I went back there. The boardwalk is under renovation. So I could not get really close. And I was hampered by my lack of a telephoto. So no closeups. But some nice wide shots to demonstrate the size of the population.

    Backstory: The bog was created by the deforestation of the area it is in. The location would flood, and a bog began to flourish. In the 1950's, the local botanical society planted a bunch of different bog plants. Including purps, and possibly some D. rotundifolia. The bog continued to grow, and is now home to an incredibly dense population of S. purpurea.

    Anyways, here are the photos:























    Found this little guy, near my Grandparent's cabin:



    Thanks for looking!

    Nice purps, but I have to admit the wandering garter was what caught my eye. I love snakes!
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.
