Droplets of water from an early morning shower combine with the natural mucilage on the tentacles of the leaf (which it uses to ensnare insects) of a Climbing Sundew – Drosera macrantha. This is a carnivours plant. This photo was taken whilst walking along the Oyster Walk in Coffin Bay, South Australia.
