another dragonfly

By ruurd
here a picture of a dragonfly caught by a carnivorous plant. Sundew (Drosera) is a genus of carnivorous plants in the Sundew family (Droseraceae) and counts around two hundred species. The botanical name Drosera is derived from the Ancient Greek δρόσος (drosos) = dew. The sundew lures, catches and digests insects through a glistening, sticky substance on its tentacles. The prey serves to provide the plant with nutrients that are virtually absent from the soil where the plants live. Most sundew species live in swampy areas, but there are exceptions in extremely arid areas
