Nice photos Mac. It's always a toss up with sundews as to whether to photograph the rosettes of the flowers, which the plant cleverly holds high above its insect traps in order to avoid snaring its own pollinators.

Fun fact! Don’t be fooled by the delicate appearance of the spoon-leaved sundew; this small native perennial from Australasia is carnivorous, entrapping small insects with the red, sticky hairs that cover its leaves.
