Unfurling by shepherdmanswife

Unfurling

Drosera, commonly known as the sundews, comprise one of the largest genera of carnivorous plants, with at least 194 species.These members of the family Droseraceae lure, capture, and digest insects using stalked mucilaginous glands covering their leaf surfaces. The insects are used to supplement the poor mineral nutrition of the soil in which they grow. Various species, which vary greatly in size and form, can be found growing natively on every continent except Antarctica. (taken from Wikipedia)
The problem with owning one of these plants when you are owned by 3 cats is that the sticky red buds capture the cat fur as they pass. I have to de-hair the plant before taking my shots of it!
Superb shot, great detail and focus
