The Carnivorous Plant FAQ Field Trip Report -

North and South Carolina low country, 2007

Return to the Trip Overview

In dead leaves:
The Drosera intermedia was in particular quite nice.

I had fully intended to spend the remainder of my day at this site, but my activities in the area had inflamed the tempers of the residents in several fire ant mounds, and as a result every shrub and patch of dry ground was crawling with angry stinging ants. It was time to leave.

What to do? I had about three hours of light left, and a bit more time for hiking in the gloaming. On a mad lark I decided to go to The Green Swamp and walk the trails. Why not? After all, it seemed wrong to go to North Carolina and not pay my respects to The Swamp!
