A Clever Trap
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Pitcher Plant, Sarracenis Purpurea, is found primarily in bogs and marshland and is very common on the Bruce Peninsula. These plants have leaves shaped like cups, with hairs pointing into the cup so bugs will slide down and cannot escape. They are devoured by gastric juices in the bottom of the pitcher and provide the nourishment for the plant.|

How nice to see a post from you again after a long time!! A very fine close capture of this beautiful and peculiar Pitcher Plant. Excellent light and colours and fine details. I wonder what size they are?
TFS and hope you're keeping well! Ulla
