Drosera stenopetala growing on mountain video

Here is a short video I took of Drosera stenopetala growing in the alpine zone at Arthurs Pass on New Zealands Southern alps. Its shot at about 1400 m above sea level maybe higher.
You can also see Drosera arctaurii and a strange form of drosera arctaurii with wide leaves.
I will post some pics as well once I upload them to photobucket.

Ok Here are some pics I took of the Drosera growing at Arthurs Pass

Drosera stenopetala growing at about 1100m above sea level


Drosera arctaurii c.1400m with a very wide leaf possibly a hybrid with stenopetala which was growing very near?


Drosera arctaurii c. 1400m typical narrow long leaf beside the unusual wide leafed form


Drosera spatulata c. 1000m a very red looking plant in this area, due to the bright sun at higher altitudes

Nice spatulata - I love how it's all red.
Such nice photos and lovely mountains, I can almost see Frodo and Legolas in behind trying to find a way in mountains :D
Yeah, that spatulata is stunning!
