    I'll be in London for the next week, so I'll post the rest of the photos then. Sadly, I won't have the monster Olympus with me, so the photos I'll be taking will be less than stellar compared to these ones. Hopefully I'll be able to stop by Kew.

    Very nice photos! Those Neps are great, the veitchii has a very nice peristome.

    Hi Mass:

    Graham is actually working pretty hard and isn't a slacker (and I think you were just kidding when you said that). He does an excellent job as staff photographer and if he wasn't doing that important work we wouldn't be capturing these moments in pictures.

    Hey Cthulhu138. Those shots of Green Swamp show the site was actually burned this year, probably early in the season. If you look at the photographs with dried pitchers you will see black and charcoal laden stems from shrubs in the bogs. The grasses and sedges you see are important associates and are o.k. to be with the pitchers.

    Sincerely,

    Phil Sheridan, Ph.D.

    What I usually do is take a few photos, help move this, take a few photos, more manual labor, etc. You'll see what I was working on in the next photo post. Only a few more days left in London.

    Okay, back from London. Recovering from food poisoning from the hotel food and a lost passport.

    Anyways, back to where I left off.

    Odd dormant coloration.

    I sanded this quite a bit, trying to keep it in one piece.

    New plant bed looking very level.

    Bad photo, but a hooded merganser landed on the pond. I thought it was cool.

    S. leucophylla, Liberty County, FL still holding some leaves.

    The Chuck Hall bog. Keep in mind, these two plants are right next to each other receiving the same amount of light.

    And now for some Sphagnum.

    This was up on a hill.

    The sun was setting, so these are a bit blurry. This Sphagnum was growing nearly submerged in a stream. Very dark colors, very fluffy texture. I have some in culture currently.

    And that's it for volunteer week.

    It's the reddest Sphag I've ever seen, and compact. Lucky for you, that species grows well into Canada.
