I spent this weekend visiting different CP sites throughout New England. The first stop was a failed attempt to see Pinguicula vulgaris in New Hampshire with Natch. The site is at the top of a large talus slope. We were able to get about 3/4 of the way up but then got stuck at a thick treeline growing near the top of the slope. Next year we will try to break through it somewhere.
So first up really was a bog in southern NH that I stopped at on my way to MA, there were a lot of really nice Sarracenia purpurea ssp. purpurea here:
Thamnophis sauritus, Ribbon Snake:
S. purpurea ssp. purpurea:
D. intermedia and rotundifolia:
The next few sites were all really sandy ponds and shorelines with lots of D. filiformis, D. intermedia and various Utricularia that I went to on Sunday with a few people from the NECPS and Jay Lechtman.
Tiny American Toad?:
Some species of Lobelia?:
Toad getting stuck in D. intermedia, there were a ton of these little tiny toads that would get stuck in the Drosera for a bit, seems they usually were able to wriggle free though:
