“Show us something that contains something else”, is this week’s photo challenge. In these shots, the insectivorous plants contain the ants and other hapless insects innocently going about their daily tasks. Lured by scent and then ensnare by the sticky tentacles, digestive enzymes are released to dissolve and while the leaves curl dinner is neatly contained.
Though I’m sure you would admit that there is a stealthy beauty to these glistening ant traps. They remind me of sea anemones, and their glistening ‘dew-drops’ make wonderful macro photos.
