Not A Botanist

 

“Damn it, I’m a photographer, not a botanist!”  Which is why I can’t identify half the plants, shrubs, and flowers I see while hiking.  I can tell the difference between deciduous and coniferous trees and I can identify things like daisies, buttercups, irises, lilacs, Lotus blossoms, etc., but  beyond what’s common knowledge, I’m typically lost.

 

So, when I came across this in a marshy area of the trail I was hiking one day, I had no idea what it was.  But while hiking another trail on another day, I came across an information plaque that labeled this a “Pitcher Plant.”

And here’s the underside…. Odd…
