sarracenia x excellens by amphirion sarracenia x excellens by amphirion
a carnivorous plant found in freshwater bogs of the southeastern part of North America. It is a natural occuring hybrid between two american pitcher plants: sarracenia minor (hooded pitcher plant) and s. leucophylla (white trumpet). Pitchers are characterized by green pitchers being molted with red and white at the top. Average size is 65 cm. Pitcher plants are known for their gluttony of devouring flies, yellow jackets, and ants to the point where they topple over the weight of their victims. Unlike the venus fly trap, the pitcher plant does not shut close it's lid, but rather is a pitfall trap: insects become drunk with drugged nectar enter in a smooth waxy mouth with no hold, and fall into a digestive soup awaiting at the bottom.

Very cool wallpaper with great colors and good details on the plant. One minor thing in this one is though that some of the suddenly stop (don't fade out like the rest of them) and in some lines the edges don't look solid enough :|
But besides such minor things, this is indeed a good wallpaper :thumbsup:
