[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the flower of yesterday's carnivorous Pitcher Plant. From this angle it looks like an "ordinary" flower, but further images in days to come will show some unusual details, beyond the leaves' capacity to trap and devour insects.

At the request of folks who live here, the exact location will not be published here

Hello Silke,
I recognized this little beauty right off the bat, as we have some growing in a bog not far from my home. These are truly unique and rare plants and must be protected for future generations to view. You have done a superb job of photographing this particular one for all to to enjoy.
The plants we have here in my area are Northern Pitcher plants. I got a few shots of them a few weeks ago, but haven't been back to check on their progress since that time.

Hello again!
A lovely view of the gorgeous flowers too! I love its shape and colour and details are very sharp here. This is all new to me!
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Hi Silke,

I love all the pitcher plants. It shows to me as a flower of Sarracenia purpurea.
Very great picture! Thanks for showing us that nice plant which grows also into my yard.
I am also a Carnivorous Plant lover ;O)


Hi silke,

I was very impressed because it is very nice
Your hands, health,
Best wishes,

Hello Silke,
Welcome back on TN again!
This is a fine capture of the flowers of this rare species of Pitcher plant, the closest flower being taken with utmost sharpness and DOF, while the other forms a nice BG showing a slightly different view.
Intersting to see this, a fine contribution on your return to TN and thanks for sharing it.
Have a good weekend,

Hi dear Silke,
I missed this wonderful flower.
The colours so warm and looking like an orchid.
I like the warm light and the sharp arrangement.
Thanks, kind regards
