Pitcher Plant

Pitcher Plants are abundant at the Lake Jeanette bog this year. Their flowers can be seen everywhere out in the bog. It’s really hard to get the flower of the Pitcher Plant and the foliage all in one photo, because the flowers are so tall. But this plant had a flower that wasn’t so tall and I was able to get it all in one frame.

The Pitcher Plant is a carnivorous plant in that they trap insects in their water filled fronds. More info can be found in this previous post:http://blog.visitcranelake.com/?p=242
