    I love when my sundews get BIG insects. OK, this one isn't huge, but it's a good snag for my D. slackii, which really curles it's leaves over prey. It's the folded over leaf:


    Here's a closeup of the leaf with the fly:

    Nice! I also love it when droseras try to supersize their meal! Here's a shot of one of my d. hamiltonii - it took two leaves to envelop a large spider. It caught it on its own, too!

    Nice photo and plant Capslock. I see there were two lazy tentacles that didn't feel like doing any bug eating. Maybe they weren't hungry.

    Noah...thats an awsome photo too. Reminds me of my capensis that rolled around a large moth.

    What a beauty! It looks different from either of the 2 clones I cultivate, so if you ever have a spare I would be interested in making an exchange. I notice my plant is offsetting which this species seems to do periodically.
