Drosera capensis absolutely killing it ;)
You know, I'm not sure actually. It was one of the first capensis clones I got, as a leaf cutting if I remember correctly. I never really liked the clone until I basically neglected it for around a year, took it out and realized that it had filled out really nicely :lol:

Here's a different view of a sundew, just the blossom with a visitor who likes to live dangerously. Thanks to help from this forum I now know that it is Drosera binata.

I'm not usually one for filters but I had a 'Bob Ross' happy little accident with the exposure setting. I give you Drosera intermedia overexposed.

Twas actually rather challenging getting a decent dew shot. Most of mine are summering out on my balcony. As a result, they wind up catching enough bugs and general airborne debris that finding a relatively clean but dewy leaf/plant has been difficult. Finally resorted to taking a shot of a young Drosera prolifera pup. You can click on the photo for a larger picture.

I was going to go put Dreadredhead in the lead, but I had already liked her pic.
Sorry DRH.
Everyone, go vote for everyone's pic but mine.
