Here's my entry:

Sarracenia hybrid (leucophylla x purpurea). That's Sarracenia x "Dixie Lace" to the left and right in the background.
Canon EOS 20D with the Canon 17-85mm EFS lens
ISO 400
1/125 sec shutter speed @ f7.1
Photo was taken in North Carolina, USA on July 22nd, 2012. I'm living in the USA. :)
I think the frog is the "Green Tree Frog" (Hyla cinerea). There are more than one species of tree frogs in this state with green coloration, so I might be mistaken.

(edited this post to add this note) The only editing I did was to crop the photo and tweak the colors (to better match the true coloration). The frog was truly inside the pitcher.

Nothing looks particularly *Amazing* so this is all I have....

'Phillippine Sunrise'

Nepenthes truncata "Paisan Highlands" and some small ferns...

I took this in front of an orange glow softbox, with my Nikon D5100, and a 40mm macro lens, aperture was about ten, and I can't recall the shutter speed.

I did some minor contrast, and sharpness modifications in postedit, and added a black border..

I currently live in an underground lair, high in the Canadian alps... And occasionally frequent interdimensional space... But I'm mostly Canadian...

Great photos so far! I guess I'll go with this one:

FTS seed grown (Dionaea muscipula)
Taken with standard iPhone 4s camera.
Edits: Darkened black cloth background for a more uniform blackness and added a black border to make it an even 1920x1080. Everything else is the raw original.
