Take Pictures of Pitcher Plants

Trumpet pitcher plants near Wright LakeIn the Apalachicola and Osceola National Forests, these carnivorous plants gobble up flies and other small insects that fall inside their long trumpets.

Don't worry, they only eat by dissolving what falls inside them, so you can step right up and look at their unusual leaves and beautiful rubbery yellow or red blooms.

They bloom along the roadside and in damp areas in the pine woods starting in late March.

One of the best places to see lots of pitcher plants is in the open prairies along the Apalachee Scenic Byway between Bristol and Sumatra.
