I returned to the same colony a couple of weeks later. There was a heavy rain, I was told, a few days earlier. Many a tall pitcher leaf of this S. flava colony in Florida were tilted with the weight of water inside the pitcher tube. In one of them I found this spider being drowned in a rainwater-filled pitcher.
