Erect tuberous sundews usually have magnificent traps.
being able to take a close-up shot of them allows you to see
all the beauty of the traps.


Here are some of these traps

Me too! I love Macro shots. What did you use to take them? Any Macros of other plants?

Not only the traps are astounding but the shots as well. I love how you see the reflection of the room in the dew drops.

your macro work is amazing to me as a person just starting to learn the ins and outs of it.

magnificent photos and I also was instantly drawn to Droseras for subjects, it is wild how different the world looks looking at them up close!

do you mind if I message to pick your brain a little more about your setup/lighting/etc?

Amazing! They dont have a lot of tentacles do they?
What does "aff" mean?

Also, are those branching tentacles I see on Auriculata and Modesta?

Very nice pictures! What macro lens did you use? I am looking for a good macro oens that can clip onto the back of my Galaxy s7 edge to take some pictures of my pygmies.

I just noticed, you can kinda see the reflection of the setup on the dew drops!
