Well yesterday I went up a mountain near where I live to see some Drosera arcturi. I seem to be able to pick the best weather to go up lol - I chose a massive cold snap - if u see any white patches they are hail not snow. I will post some pics of a trip I did last autumn later. Enjoy. :)

Great pics. I love this species and it's especially great to see growing wild. I look forward to seeing the pics from the previous trip.

Really beautiful. Seeing the flower stalks and spent seed pods is very interesting. I also love the look of your native bogs, dismally lovely.

The shrubs were a lot taller before it got burnt in the black Saturday bushfires. I never saw any drosera near the sticks where the tall shrubs were.

All very nice. This is such an interesting and mysterious species it is a treat to see so many photos of it and its habitat. Great-looking sphagnum, too. I hope you had a hat or hood.
