I am really enjoying sharing my trip pics with people that appreciate them. No one around here wants to see my CP pics!
Here's a couple more from past trips.
This is from a trip about 4 years ago.
Have a go at guessing what species it is. (yes I do know)
Let me know if you need clues.
This shack was home sweet home for nearly a month while I messed around in the general area of the above Nepenthes. I wasn't fatboy after that trip I can tell you. I came home about 7kg lighter after eating little fish and hedgehogs that we had to catch ourselves, with rice.
This is an ovata we found by the road in West Sumatra.
A visually stunning species in a location that is just as spectacular. Aristolochiodes grows on a mountain named "Tujuh" which means "seven" in Indonesian. It's an ancient volcanic crater that has become a lake and there are seven small peaks around the lake. The lake itself is at 2000m altitude and the peaks rise up from between about 500m to 800m above the level of the lake. It is freezing cold in the morning but breathtaking at the same time.
Also a LOT of a singalanery kind of thing and we also found some huge, dead bongso pitchers on the trail up to the lake.
No prize for guessing what this one is, on Mt Talang. One of my very favourite Neps (sadly it's always so dark in the moss forrest and I'm not good at flash photography).
