The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Southern Spain in 2011

Return to the Trip Overview

Lovely glands:
Look at how colorful these leaves are! However, this not due to genetics. The same plants had both strongly and weakly pigmented leaves. It was all a matter of how much exposure that particular leaf would get.

Here it is, backlit more strongly.

In case you are wondering, the conditions were still very windy. Macro work in the field is taxing, so I relaxed for a moment by simply pointing the camera at a few plants and filming them...

(OK, Beth tells me that my voice sounds funny here. Maybe I was laying on a rock that was pinching me in a private way....)
