Friday morning our tour guide, Rich, took Gale and myself around to some sites to see some CP’s further east then what I usually go.

Rich brought some hybrids with him, 3 clones of Drosera intermedia x rotundifolia (Drosera x beleziana) and Drosera intermedia X Drosera filiformis called Drosera hybrida, which he was kind enough to share with us.

The first stop was Webbs Mill Bog.

Then he took us to another site where Drosera filiformis grows all over the sand roads.

The last site that Rich was kind enough to take us to was a site that has a hybrid of Drosera intermedia X Drosera filiformis called Drosera hybrida. This plant is much smaller then Drosera filiformis. The leaves do not come to a point and the tentacles do not start till further up the petiole then Drosera filiformis. Rich told us that at one time there was a bunch of Drosera filiformis growing here. When we looked there was none to be found, and only about 6 or 7 Drosera hybrida left.

We took the boats to Batsto Lake and paddled upstream.

Gale came across this plant. I believe that it is Drosera intermedia x rotundifolia (Drosera x beleziana).

Then early Sunday Morning we went for a little paddle in Atsion Lake.

We also saw lots of Drosera intermedia and Drosera rotundifolia around Atsion Lake, but no Drosera filiformis.

Looks like it was a great trip.
It was a great trip! The wildlife we saw & heard along w/ all of the CPs and great scenery was beyond my expectations. We had a blast!

(check out that fish in the Osprey's talons - very cool)

Along w/ all the sights & sounds, it's also excellent to be able to sit down and talk CPs with a bunch of friends that you've either just met or have not seen for a year or so.

IMO, the boats clearly added another dimension to the trip - allowing the discovery of wildlife & CPs we would never have found if we stayed on terra firma.

How cool! I love the roadside filiformis. What a great trip. Looks like you had some fun. I like the dual turtles, too. They look so happy together... Awwwwee!

Man I wish I had been able to go! I may be heading out there later this year, I'll make sure to take some pics then.

It's pretty cool to see a natural drosera hybrid out there.
