Insectivorous Sundews

I find the sculptural beauty of the Sundew family of plants a constant draw in late Winter and Spring when they are at their peak.  The combination of clear green leaves, red sticky hairs and poppy-like buds, bursting into classically simple flowers are irresistible when I have the camera.  These insectivorous plants are also challenging to photograph because of the many angles and planes of varying sizes.  Here are four of my favourite shots.
