Irresistible.....to flies and tiny insects

see @shepherdmanswife/other-things/2014-06-07 to see macro of one tiny frond

Drosera, commonly known as the sundews, comprise one of the largest genera of carnivorous plants, with at least 194 species.
All species of sundew are able to move their tentacles in response to contact with digestible prey. The tentacles are extremely sensitive and will bend toward the center of the leaf to bring the insect into contact with as many stalked glands as possible.

see @shepherdmanswife/365/2014-08-08 to see the flower of this plant
I like the composition here better. And looks like I got the first comment!!! :)
