after visting the Eglin Airforce Base our next stop should be in Washington County. There we wanted to visit a location where we were told to find the red D. filiformis. On the way to this location we stopped at some other small locations with some Sarracenia.
The first location was close to the highway. We could see the plants out of the window while driving on the highway, so we took the next exit and tried to get closer to them. The first thing we found were some Opuntia:
A bit deeper in the forest we could find some of the plants we have seen from the highway:
As there was still quite a bit to drive that day we did not stay too long there. At this time the weather was still quite alright.
About an hour later we arrived at the location of the red D. filiformis. The weather has completely turned and a thunder storm was approaching:
Nevertheless we parked our car and went down a small sandy path towards a small lake. It got increasingly darker, which made it hard to take pictures. Here is what i could do:
There have also been a lot of U. cornuta:
Meanwhile we could hear the first thunders and see the first lightnings. It was clear, that we had to get back to our car as fast as possible. I would have loved to spend a bit more time there, but the weather did not allow it.
