    Smile N. spectabilis shot

    Hello all,

    Just wanted to share a picture of my N. spectabilis' new pitcher. Out of my (admittedly small) collection of Nepenthes, I think this one produces the most beautiful pitchers.

    Oooh very nice indeed . That macro shot is just spectacular. Is this the North Sumatra form? If not which form is it? Thanks for sharing .

    BTW, which camera did you take that spectacular shot with? Very nice.

    Thanks for the compliments. I'm not sure which form it is, it was sold to me as just "n. spectabilis".

    This shot was taken with a Canon 20D with a Canon 100mm macro lens on a tripod with a remote shutter release. Mirror lockup and manual focus were used. No special lighting, just the grow lights in my plant rack (2 x T8's, daylight spectrum).

    That looks great great color. I like the pitchers with the green/red/black colors. Good job dude.

    Brilliant shot. Gotta love that striped/toothy peristome *drools*

    I love this species. Would you happen to have a shot of the entire plant?
