Sarracenia minor "Okee Giant"

Does anyone have a picture of a Sarracenia minor "Okee Giant"?

I wanna see how big they really can get...
I found a few.

I got to see one at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. They really are BIG, the one there was easily 3'


I don't have a 'Giant' but wanted to post this picture (i hope it is ok in this post)



Forgive me if this has been asked before but, what type of camera do you use?

I have been busting my butt these past few weeks to get the hang of my new digicamcorder/camera and I can't get nearly as beautiful a picture.

The picture was taken with a Canon EOS 50e (namend Elan 2 in USA ?) with a Sigma 105mm/2,8 EX Makro on Kodachrome 100 Extra Colour slide film.
I also used a tripod. Aperture was around 4.0-5,6 (guessed from the narrow depth of feeld)

I see, so you use a real camera. Do you then just scann the image in?
yes, I bought a relativly "cheap" slide scanner on ebay.

I don't have a digital camera, but Nikon makes some nice (and expensive&#33
cameras which seem to be good for close up shots, too.

Maybe in one year a 2 or 3 MPix Camera will be cheap enough for me, too. (if only the Canon D30 would drop in prize)

CPN Volume 31, No.2( newest issue) Says it can reach heights of 90cm. So Pyro is correct!

I know what you mean about expensive
The only reason I have my new one is because it was a wedding gift, if I were waiting to buy one for myself I'd be waiting a looooooooong time.

Um is that a joke? Nothing is on the web about it.

Yeah, it's a joke. My S. minor, I don't know how old it is, but it put up the tiniest little flower I've ever seen on a Sarracenia (dandelion size), and the traps don't get very big, for whatever reason. So I jokingly refer to it as S. minor "Missouri Midget". Sorry for the confusion.

That's wierd! It is orignally an Okefenokee Giant?

on ebay you can find NIkons new Coolpix 8000 (I think) for a great deal... may are going between 3 and 5 hundred... the camera is still selling in stores (it's brand new) for 7 hundred plus...

and uhh... its a FIVE megapixel...

(I am filling my piggy bank&#33
