Excellent image. Is this a trap for insects?

@Francisco Romero: They do indeed lure insects in with scent but only to cover them with pollen.
I was thinking the same, are they insect killers or water reservoirs?

Je ne connais pas cette étrange fleur ! Tu peux augmenter le volume du son ?
Bonne journée lumineuse!

Gorgeous. Like acid trip trumpets ;-)

@Rick: That would be 'Strawberry Fields' then :)
Wow, what great framing and beautiful details here, Grouser. I've seen an entirely different pitcher plant (one that's carniverous) before, but not one like this. Well done!

@Jason Politte: It's probably a misnomer on my part here really. I know the plant you mean
Spooky things if you ask me !!

Excellent shot of these primitive life forms, they are no doubt from another world.

They are unusual although makes a good subject.

Looks like the horn of an ancient phonograph. Very interesting plants with these odd shaped flowers !!!

I would stay away, too afraid they would grab me like the cholla cactus which is said that they jump on you...
