I took a few more photos:

D. adelae:

Image

D. capensis "typical":

Image

D. regia:

Image

D. venusta:

Image

Cephalotus looks like it got hold of some lipstick:

Image

N. veitchii with a little bit of banding:

Image

This one is of the nectar secreting protuberance underneath the lid but it did not quite turn out:

Image

I also took some better photos of my setup:

Those macro shots are awesome! :) I know which camera you used but did you use a macro lens? And which one is it? 100mm?

Thanks!

@Darkrai283: I used a macro lens, it is 40mm but keep in mind that I crop and edit all of my photos.

I was taking some photos during my tryptophan induced torpor and some of them turned out:

A bad photo of D. regia but I like seeing the sessile glands:

Image

A D. regia leaf unfurling:

Image

I have not yet shown any Utricularia in this thread and my seedgrown longifolia are looking good:

Image

Image

Love cephalotus:

Image

N. veitchii is drooling a little bit, just like me at christmas dinner:

To me, the D.Regia looks cool! (probably because I haven't got one in my collection yet. :mrgreen: ) I also love the photo of the nectar on the N. veitchii lid! Your plants seem very happy! :)
