The Top End of the Northern Territory in Australia is a centre of diversity for carnivorous plants. In May 2021, Boaz Ng embarked on a 10-day expedition to document these plants in the wild and photographed over 45 taxa across 3 genera. This field report recounts his experience and focuses on a selection of species that represent adaptations towards the wet and dry seasonal dichotomy of the region.
