    Nice photos!

    Yeah, the gnat one would be what mine usually catch. All my sundews aside from the Binata are small, so I don't think they could catch anything as large as a damselfly or bee. I really don't think the Binata could either, as I have seen ants escape before.

    I've tried before to take close ups of the "gnat carnage", but my phone camera doesn't do clear close ups.

    Not a really great photo but I thought I'd share, seeing as I've never seen a picture of a baby sundew eating before.

    It's a 1.5 week old burmannii
    The red arrows point to the bugs and the blue one points to the fish food dust particle I gave it awhile ago. I didn't think it would catch insects by itself.

    unfortunately no. Even with my magnifying lens they look like moving black peanuts with antennae. they don't look quite like aphids, or rather any aphids Ive seen before.

    So I was checking up on my outdoor dews today and found these two snags.

    My D. rotundifolia finally caught something substantial: a nice moth.

    Sadly, my D. indica caught and killed a large butterfly before I could save it.

    I posted this before elsewhere. D. scorpioides biting off more than it can chew:
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    I love when they do that. D. scorpioides is very strong for its size.
