we have been at several locations in Jackson County. The first one is just a few miles away from the Stone County Sarracenia alata population. There we found some Drosera, Pinguicula primuliflora as well as some S. alata
A bit further in the south we could find some more S. alata, one of them had a frog in it
We had the great luck (totally unplaned, just by chance) to meet the Manager of the Sandhill Crane National Wildlife Refuge in the early afternoon that day. He told us to know some carnivorous plants location in the Refuge, which he wanted to show us. As we all knew, that this is a chance we won't have again we were more than happy to go with him.
On the way to the location we got to see couple with it's chick of the rare Sandhill Crane.
In the refuge, we could see the following plants:
Maybe some of you do know "The Shed" close to Interstate 10, north of Ocean Springs. This one was recommended to us for having dinner. What noone told is was, that there may be some rain coming through the roofs if it's raining outside. The following picture has been taken inside the Restaurant
Finally, a nice day came to it's end. We had totally other plans for that day, but most often the unexpected things are what you will remember for quite some time, and that's definitely true for that day
Wow really nice pictures again! I wonder if those Utricularia purpurea are all right outside of the water? There are so many of them, and their flowers look beautiful. It looks like the tide went over the Pinguicula. And I've never seen Drosera intermedia with such tall stems. Very interesting!
Great pics! Though, I'm suspicious of the identity of the pings. The leaf shape corresponds more to lutea, not the wider, flat-leaved primuliflora, and I know that this species also occasionally buds at the leaf tips.
you might be right with the Pinguicula. I am not too familiar with them and have hard times identifying the rosettes. I used the buds on the leafs as a clear sign for P. primuliflora. But if you say lutes does that as well, there is also a good chance, that I am wrong
