A bit of fun today, it's up to you to figure out what the heck we have here.
Another from the Harrogate Show, still hand held and being jostled by the crowd, this plant just amazed me. Part of quite a sizeable plant I just thought it so unusual.
Please VIEW LARGE if you have the time for water droplets and vein details.
Thanks for looking and for your great comments on my uploads, all are very much appreciated.

I have no idea what it is called I only know it is some kind of insect trap plant. They had them at the Durham Botanical gardens but I never got the name. Great shot of it Annette.
