This lovely little flower attracted me as I thought it was an orchid. There were many growing near the natural pool created by the Gunlom Waterfalls. There were so many that you had to be careful not to step on them. I later discovered that this innocent looking flower is in fact a killer so now I’m really pleased to have seen a carnivorous flower in the flesh, so to speak.
“Utricularia fulva is a small to medium sized annual carnivorous plant that belongs to the genus Utricularia. U. fulva is endemic to Australia, where it appears to be largely restricted to the Northern Territory, specifically the Arnhem Land sandstone escarpment. It grows as a terrestrial or subaquatic plant in or near sandy stream beds. It was originally described and published by Ferdinand von Mueller in 1858.” (Wikipedia)

Wow!! Fabulous image. A lovely looking flower - although perhaps not ideal to send to a loved one!! Wink

V2 definitely as a sweet little face. I like the drama of v4, too.
