    Some sundew macros

    Thanks again for the kind words, y'all! The mosquitoes get caught a lot, because they breed in the water the pots are in. The tank's closed, so they can't escape.

    Some sundew macros

    Howdy and thanks for the kudos! I use a Pentax K10D with a variety of Sigma and Zeiss/Hasselblad lenses as well as a stack of extension tubes. Most of these pix were shot with a Sigma 105 mm macro lens; for the D. madagascariensis I used a Zeiss/Hasselblad 60mm f/3.5 Distagon C and half a foot...

    List of all tropical drosera?

    Thanks, Jim! I don't have CPotW, but the SG....albeit a five-year old edition. Is that still up-to-date?

    Goodbye, cruel world

    I bought it as a "Redsomethingorother", but after a few weeks of substandard weather, it turned green, like they all do. I don't believe in varieties, only in species :-)

    Cephalotus macro shots

    Confession by way of a few macro shots

    Thanks for you kind words. They're nice enough pix, I guess...I only wish they were sharp! (dang that &^%$! tripod!) Dark side indeed....after four hours of being glued to the viewfinder, wrestling with depth-of-field values below two millimeters (and no macro rail!), I feel terminal myopia...

    Confession by way of a few macro shots

    Hi everyone, bad news: I've gone astray and flirted with the neighbors' wives. Apart from Nepenthes, I now have a whole stable of sundews as well as two cephalotus. Why? Last week I came home with my newly purchased 105 mm macro lens, all gung-ho to take some real close close-ups of my D...

    New Website: Snakes of Taiwan

    Thank you very much for pointing out the difference between poisonous and venomous - I'm embarrassed that as a language professional I didn't catch that :-) I've adjusted the website accordingly! Thanks again Hans
