Hey guys! Well, I had such an overwhelming response on my Carnivorous Bog Bowl and I thank you all for those kind posts. Unfortunately, I can only submit one of my little plant of horrors for this contest. I was highly complimented on one of the plants in the bowl and so here it goes. Let's see how well it does among many beautiful plant photo submissions by you all ;) .

Purpurea X Flava - Sarracenia

Here is a Dionaea muscipula (common red) that has bitten off a bit more than it can chew.

Camera is a Nikon D700 with a micro Nikkor 105mm VR lens.

I have not had this plant for 3 months yet, so please don't vote for this photo - I wouldn't want to break the rules. But it is a fun shot, so I wanted to share it with the group.
