Caption: Pitcher plants (Nepenthes ampullaria), viewed from above. These vase-shaped carnivorous plants contain a pool of rainwater and digestive enzymes. When insects fall into the trap they are unable to get out and are digested in the pool, providing the plant with nutrients, such as phosphorous and nitrogen. Pitcher plants are typically found in nutrient-poor habitats such as bogs and swamps. N. ampullaria grows to a size of around 10 centimetres. Photographed in Bako National Park, Sarawak, Borneo.
