round-leaved sundew & damselfly

Drosera rotundifolia & Zygoptera

Description:

Interesting to see how the damselfly, just chooses the sundew to sit down with so many other plants around. Would the damselfly are also attracted by the bright red color and drops of mucilage, loaded with a sugary substance, that cover the sundew leaves?

Hello. In a situation where more than one species appears in a spotting photo please select the group of one of the species to represent the spotting. In this case plants or arthropods. This is because "other" is reserved for organisms that do not fit in the other Project Noah categories. Examples include starfish, octopus, jellyfish, clams, worms and snails. Of course both species can be listed and described in the description and/or notes.
