Densely-packed lower pitchers of Nepenthes sp.

As I promised before, this is a picture of lower pitchers of Nepenthes plant. The pitchers are formed at base of the plant.

More description on this carnivore plant are shown in my previous posting.

Enjoy the view....

Hello Benyamin

A very good grouping of these pitcher plants.We have a similar plant here.Well composed and framed.A very interesting post.TFS


Hello Benyamin,
Well seen on this densely-packed lower pitchers. With many of them, nature has a way to control insects. Well composed and exposed picture. A bit sharpen would be perfect.

Very interesting composition, Benyamin. : )
All those "open mouths" facing every which way and scattered all around give the eyes a lot to look at.
I have never seen these plants growing in such density.
The focus is a tad soft, but the colors make a good contrast against the dark BG.
TFS. : )

Hello Ben,
Most interesting subject!
Well framed, and captured with good colours and sharp fine details...

Hi Benyamin,
This dense population of pitchers is wonderful. Composition is really beautiful and remembers a clasical picture of potteries.
TFS, José M.

Now this IS some assembly of pitchers alright, Ben!
Do I see an insect already "pocketed" in one of them, as they say :-)?
They truly look like utensils.
Very interesting image, my friend. Thanks for sharing it.

hi ben,
wath appened?

had you used a slow time?
ciao mario

Hi Benyamin
An interesting plant. I think it looks like something that Hollywood dreams up. Does it eat people? :)
I would have liked it to have the focus a bit sharper, but the detail is there as is the composition. The colours are very interesting to.
TFS and regards.

Adorable composition Ben with beautiful POV and strange effect in the focus.

I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF, focus, sharpness, color, lighting, background, framing.

I like it: notes.

I don't like it: nothing.

Fairly slow speed... did you use tripod for this capture or the sharpness was altered by some factor?
Best regards... Ricardo

Hello Benyamin,
what an interesting plant you showing us today. Very well capured, I like the POV and the colors. Composition and presentation are great.

Hi Ben,
These are amazing plants. Carnivores! I used to keep a Venus Flytrap plant. It was always fun to feed it. I love the colors and textures of the Pitchers. Very cool shot.

Hi Ben,
I find the subject really interesting, and the composition good. But the bluryness is hurting my eyes.

I have to say this picture is very pretty, I love the colors, and the composition of the shot. I think there is a bit of noise that makes them look a bit out of focus. Maybe Noise ninja with a bit of sharpening added would help here.

Hello Benyamin,
I love these pitcher plants, they're weird and fascinating and this group is really great! Good focus showing details and colours very well. Nice composition too!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hi Benyamin,
Very nice composition.
POV,colors, framing and lighting are wonderful.

Good work

magnificent true to life wildlife shot..
i understand that real wildlife photographers dont change anything...so if this is the first take its superb..if there was some 'adjustments' to compensate for the pixel regimes..you are to be applauded
it seems quite natural and mainly photographically very acceptable
good shot old chap..you have revealed more of the world to us
