    I've been playing with my camera a bit, and managed to get a tolerable photo of a new upper pitcher on one of my favorite plants: N. lowii from G. Mulu. The depth of field is limited, and the composition is poor, but the detail is not too bad overall. You can clearly see the markings inside the pitcher, which will later be obscured as prolonged exposure to strong light causes its interior to turn entirely dark red.

    Personally, I think that the G. Mulu variety of this species is one of the best. Moreover, my experience with this species suggests that clones from G. Mulu produce upper pitchers which are much less prone to distortion than plants from G. Trus Madi. However, this is purely an anecdotal observation, made upon a very limited number of cultivated plants, so it of questionable validity. Perhaps someone who has been to both locations can comment? BTW, this picture is about twice actual size.

    Super, Jeff! What camera do you use for photography of your Nepenthes if I may ask?

    Thanks!

    Currently, I am using a Canon Digital Rebel, together with
    macro lenses. This camera seems to fit my needs rather well,
    and I recommend it to others.

    Dustin if your still looking for a good digital go with a Canon as you can tell Jeff's photography looks very nice and clear Canon power shot's are excellent as well. Great photo Jeff! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Thanks, EC. I don't want to turn this into an ad, but I must say
    that the same company also makes an outstanding photo printer
    (and, no, I don't work for them). [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hey E.C. I already got my new camera, I was just curious as to what Jeff used. I bought the Olympus C-750 Ultrazoom, it is a beautiful camera! Will have to get some macro lenses and filters later on.
