    northianas and serious photographers

    Of photos taken in the wild we often find fresh clean healthy pitchers and clean refreshing environment, it was all the choosy photographers scrutinising the environment and plants that came across, ignore the plants and pitchers battered by the harsh tropical sun and unfriendly bugs, a waste of time setting up the equipmnt, made worse when ones have to wait for a windless moment to avoid blur pictures. Serious photography calls for patience, perfect lighting and fair judgement that has been built over the years.

    photography would be easy if not for the strict assessors/examiners/judges if ones were to submit for, a photo contest, as an example.

    A perfect limestone habitat and lighting offered by nature and that was one of th best location where i found these northianas.
    The morning sun coming from behind, the limestone boulders acting as a backdrop,



    They look gorgeous, a reflection of the harsh environment, the rusty spots are nature not man made, a piece of natural history documentation.





    The hands were for our judgement and size comparison - not for photo assesment and contest..ha..ha

    Fantastic pictures. Thanks for sharing. N. northiana has such a variable and unique peristome. The last two pictures are fantastic and show the coloration differences in the wild. Great stuff.

    Wow! Thanks for sharing these pics. It's always nice to see Nepenthes in-situ, especially N. northiana. I've been meaning to get a N. northiana or two, but they are just so difficult to find! And it's a shame, beacause it's such a nice species - one of the most beautiful lowlanders, in my opinion.

    ...*sighs longingly*...

    Thanks again for sharing. I really appreciate it.
