Artist's Description

Subject: Trigger Flower
Location: Blackwood Estate, Yallingup

I saw many unique and unusual plants for the first time on my trip to Western Australia (as I had not been to this area in spring before), but this is the one I found most astonishing. If you look closely you can see something between the top two petals on each flower… this is the part that, when “triggered” will swing forward and down, trapping whatever insect might have been attracted to it. Like a venus flytrap it will then consume the insect to provide nutrients to the plant. You’d never guess to look at them that these flowers were killers!
