    A midge massacre! (D. capensis pic)

    Out on the back deck of my house I have two large saucers that hold a number of small pots of carnivorous plants, including a couple of cape sundews (Drosera capensis). Well a couple of weeks ago I went out and I donít know if there had been a midge convention on my deck or something, but the cape sundews had both trapped several non-biting midges (chironomids), all of which seemed to be the same species.

    Naturally...I took pictures!

    Cheers,
    EC
