The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

Drosera filiformis in Florida, 2010

Return to the Trip Overview

Easiest travel
We regrouped, gathering gear and personnel in preparation for leaving. I found that the easiest way to travel was to walk in the lake. On land, I felt bad about walking on the Drosera filiformis seedlings; also the ground was busy with fire ants.

I think the ants were agitated by the rising lake water. Some were floating in the lake---occasionally I encountered a swimming ant that was all too happy to sting me!
