    I wonder what's down there...


    VFTs!


















    So huge!






    The other side of the field without CPs in it:


    Strange looking twig on that plant...


    With a face...


    That keeps following me






    So ferocious!


    I hope you had as good a time looking over the photos as I had in the field! I tried taking video but... I'm not so great at it. Maybe next time.

    Thanks again Ozzy!

    Nice travelogue . . .

    I especially appreciated your choice in rental car -- that jacked-up truck in that parking lot shot, which just screamed, "Zuzana!"

    Breathtaking!
    I particularly loved the Drosera pictures.
    Now those are the type of vacation photos I could look at indefinitely.

    Good growing,
    Mike

    That mantis is really cool. I wonder if it managed to snag any of the bugs that came to visit the plants.

    Wow! just Wow! thank you for taking the time to post all these wonderful photos! Its always a very special thing to see CPS growing in situ. Growing CPS by themselves you don't realize how much competition they have to deal with out in the wild and how resilient these plants can probably be.

    I especially liked seeing all the other fauna that seems to be attracted to the plants. I really enjoyed the bumble bee pictures. I've been really into bumble bees in particular lately.

    How did they VTF's get there?
