Brian at work
Beth captured this image of Brian capturing video of Sarracenia.

Brian is documenting a mystery---a hybrid between Sarracenia leucophylla and Sarracenia flava var. rugelii. Yet, despite walking every square foot of Splinter Hill, Keith has never seen any variety of Sarracenia flava on the property!

Crazy! Did Sarracenia flava become locally extinct? Did Keith just overlook something? Or is there a population off the preserve, but within the flight distance of a very muscular bee?
