Expedition in Minas Gerais State, Brazil. 2011.

Recommended Posts

Hi people.

A few days seven CPers visited Minas Gerais State, in Brazil, to see a lot of beautiful CPs

(drosera, utricularia and genlisea). See this topic in PCBR (portuguese).

Is that real??!! The D. graomogolensis and D. camporupestris fields are unbelivable beautiful and it's not only thanks to sun shining in the nice angle! Thanks a lot!

EDIT: I have to look at those pics again and again! :sun_bespectacled:

One of the very best Drosera reports ever.

D. graomogolensis is one of my favourite species and now I just love it even more.

Thank you for posting Carlos!

:thanks: for all kind comments.

Is this 'my better travel to see CP in Brazil'. So far (I live in soutern Brazil).

It was a tiring expedition, We walk a lot of Km in full sun in dry conditions for a few days

(ticks too, Ohhh ... .... I hate ticks! :shock: ).

But I enjoied, I'm not a botanist ... ... I'm a just curious CPer among experts.

Was a great honor to be invited. Thanks to my friends Adilson K. Peres, Fernando Rivadavia,

Paulo Minatel, Jonathan Ferreira, Nilber Silva and Ruy Válka. :tu:

Hi Carlos,

For sure it was great to visit these places with a bigger group of CP enthusiasts and experts nethertheless it has been a tiring expedition.

If i would have the possibility to join such an expedition i would do it immediately. :biggrin:

Best regards,

Sounds like you fellows has a great time!

Seems like there are a lot of D. villosa related species spread across many hills and mountains...
