    I just got back from the Philippines (DUW)

    Hey everyone. I just returned from a two week trip to the Philippines last night. I had the wonderful opportunity to see 9 species of Nepenthes in the wild and countless more hybrids, orchids, insects, and other critters. It was an unforgettable experience for sure. I will now post for you, many of the highlights of the trip, though this does not even remotely account for the number of pictures I actually took.

    Starting off towards Mt. Victoria - heavy rain



    N. philippinensis







    We had to cross the river many times



    Weird ant-plant



    Jungle Moon



    U. striatula







    The view from my first campsite



    More N. philippinensis

    Love the shot of the Megophrys. Their call is probably the most frightening of any frog I've heard. A horrific screeching sound mixed with a baby crying. Must make the blood run cold at night in the jungle if you don't know what it is. Hell, made my blood run cold in my basement when I knew exactly what it was.

    Complex cecliae hybrids were quite nice...
