    in situ CP weekend

    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:


    D. rotundifolia:




    Thamnophis sauritus, Ribbon Snake:


    S. purpurea ssp. purpurea:














    D. intermedia:




    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.

    First site:
    Tiny American Toad?:


    Green Frog:




    D. intermedia:




    D. filiformis:












    U. purpurea:


    U. cornuta:


    Nymphaea odorata:


    Nymphioides:




    Sabatia kennedyana:


    Some species of Lobelia?:


    Baby Pickerel:


    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:

    Nice Greg ! I didn't have the gumption to get my pics up tonight. That pink flower is the Plymouth Gentian, Sabatia kennedyana.

    Thanks, I'll fix that. I don't either, but I want to try and get everything up before I forget what some of the more obscure stuff is, like that one. And I'm not gonna want to do it tomorrow either.

    Site 2:


    D. filiformis:










    D. intermedia:


    U. geminiscapa:


    Some really slender Sagittaria:


    Dunno:


    Site 3: This was basically a U. purpurea pond with some U. macrorhiza scattered in.

    All of the purple haze on the water is U. purpurea flowers:










    U. macrorhiza:




    This last site was two ponds almost connected to each other. Walking in we saw a lot of Utricularia purpurea, some U. geminiscapa, and a lot of D. intermedia. It wasn't until we got to the back side of the pond that we found D. filiformis, and we found a lot of it. The interesting thing that Johnny noticed was the second, almost connected pond was the same way, D. filiformis only appeared on the back side. The first pond site we went to was the same way. We were thinking that the wind may distribute all of the seed from them to one side of the water.

    Rhexia virginica:


    D. intermedia:








    Coming around a corner of the pond I spotted a huge patch of Rhexia:






    American toad:

    D. intermedia and Rhexia:






    Bluegill:


    D. filiformis:


    D. intermedia along the shorline:




    U. cornuta:




    This was also the only site on Sunday that we found D. rotundifolia:






    All the red is D. filiformis:


















    U. purpurea:




    This D. rotundifolia was about the size of my hand:

    All great pics Axel. I especially love the pond pics with the U. purpurea and lily pads. Gorgeous.

    Nice photos. The Utricularia geminiscapa flower looks surprisingly like the flower of Utricularia gibba.
