Hi everyone, this is my first attempt here to post some pictures I took last year. I'm attempting macro pictures, and as I still have a lot of room for improvement, tips are welcome. I will post some pictures of whole plants later. My plants survive on a south-facing windowsill or outside, as I lack decent equipment for like a greenhouse or terrarium. Most of the plants do really well in summer, but suffer a lot in winter due to low light. I've been growing cp's since spring 2013, because I was completely amazed after seeing a timelapse of a developping Nepenthes pitcher. I had been collecting other plants before that, so you can guess what happened next. A cp madness with no end and I'm just getting started :)

Best regards,

Koen

D. adelae flowers.  I love this flower stalk and the way it unfolds.

Crabspider, always in a good mood to pose for pictures. It lives the whole summer on my H. heterodoxa in the Belgian sun.

Thanks for the kind words, the equipment is Nikon D5000 body and a macro lens, Tamron 90mm F2.8 macro 1:1. I didn't use a tripod for these, that's why some are a bit out of focus.Most of these pictures are cropped by the way.
