    Wow! I live right here in the panhandle and have only barely been able to barely scrape the surface of all the stuff by me! I have seen and was able to briefly look around that bog area in walton county by 98. Saw only flava var flava, drosera intermedia, and drosera capillaris.

    What area do you live by? Yeah there is a crazy amount of CP's in the panhandle area, have you ever been to Blackwater State Forest? That's probably one of the best places to go fro CP's in this area.

    I'm in Fort Walton. Never been to Blackwater. I briefly worked at that supermarket you were talking about on 98, and one day on lunch I sneaked off to the road bythe store that kinda leads into the woods and was utterly shocked that I was walking into a bog! Never noticed the flava by the roadside until after that. That was a year ago and to me it looked like a chunk of that land was about to be developed. The only two other places I've seen CP are at Turkey Creek and various times on the reservation. The reservation is where I saw the sarrs growing on floating masses of sphagnum with d. intermedia. Sadly, when I wentto Turkey Creek a few weeks ago I only saw two rubras and that was it. I remember there being lots of rubra, flava, and all our native drosera livingalong that creek a long time ago when I was a kid. Pretty sure poachers got to them.

    Wonderful photos! It makes me happy to realize that there are still places in the world that look like this. I appreciate you taking the time to post it all. On the last set - do you mean to say that the habitat has actually improved?

    Yes that's what I was trying to show bluemax, sorry if it caused any confusion. Also I just learned that this bog is protected and is being managed by mechanical clearings, which explains the difference in the before and after pictures.
