Every time I see photos of N. sumatrana, it's like seeing it for the very first time all over again. What is amazing about it is its familiar peristome (like that of Clarke's photo) but the way we get tosee the plant in its environment. What Clark's photos and so many others lack is the ability to capture the plant in its habitat. We see a staged pitcher, so bland and boring. What makes photos of nepenthes more eye appealing is its interactions with its habitat and nature. Longor's photos capture that inspiration for me and makes the pitcher plant more elusive and very desirable! Keep the photos coming!
That first shot of the palm trees and background, reminds me of Hawai'i long ago. I wonder what this place will resemble some ten years later!
