For many people Sundew is a fascinating plant. They eat meat! A small plant, growing in very wet and very nutrient poor habitats and not often seen by many people. Their habitat is really nutrient poor, so they have to find their nutrients in a different way. They produce a sweet, sticky liquid that attracts insects. when these insects are stuck on their leaves, they fold around it and “digest” the insects, getting those hard needed nutrients.
For a photographer this is always a very difficult plant to photograph. Not because they could be eaten by it, but the surroundings are often not the nicest. And when you’ve found an accessible plant, it’s hard to make an interesting composition as there are many leafs often causing a “crowded” image. For this picture I used a very narrow depth of field, focussing on a few leafs and drops… The black things between the leafs are the unfortunate insects trapped by the plant.
