Pitcher Perfect

Northern Pitcher-plant (Purple Pitcher-plant)Sarracenia purpurea
This is a carnivorous plant. Insects become trapped in the pitcher-like leaves. The insects are then digested, and the nutrients used by the plants.

This is a carnivorous plant, remember that if you are ever tempted to pick one.

Summer Solstice

On the Summer Solstice, which occurs on June 21, the Sun is at its highest path through the sky and the day is the longest. Because the day is so long the Sun does not rise exactly in the east, but rises to the north of east and sets to the north of west allowing it to be in the sky for a longer period of time.

All these were shot tonight on Summer Solstice the longest day of the year.
