NOT ALL FLYCATCHERS NEED JAWS: "YOU CAN ALWAYS CHECK IN BUT YOU CAN NEVER CHECK OUT"

 

 

While working on the extraordinary wetland at Bateleur Nature Reserve in the Waterberg, Limpopo, South Africa Reinier Terblanche stumbled again on those marvelous little plants of the genus Drosera, the Sundews. They often grow at wet rock slabs along natural channels. This one seems closest to Drosera madagascariensis, an uncommon species. Little insects stick on the leaves and get digested externally. Much needed minerals are gained from the insects visiting and ... staying. "Sundowners at sundews": If you are a small insect think twice."
