    Bog - Eastern Massachusetts

    Today Greg (East_to_West) and I took a trip to a bog here in Eastern Mass. Enjoy......

    Bog shot.


    Some sphagnum.










    A male spotted turtle we found on the trail.


    Some really cool looking mushrooms.


    Sarracenia purpure purpurea - Some of the plants growing along the trail were green and etiolated from growing in deep shade.



















    Some purps growing in a sunnier habitat.

    Nice! A bunch of these came out great! Shlepping around calf deep in swamp goo was a blast! Definitely an awesome find today! That red sphagnum looks like it's on fire

    We'll have to hit some other sites next time you're out this way. Too bad you didn't get more shots from the Maine bogs, those are some of the nicest purpurea I've seen !

    Yeah I need to cruise back up there... I hope that one grows well for you! I plan on making a trip back up to Bangor at some point the next time I cruise back here to the right coast. I'll post some photos of the purps here in a bit.
