Artist's Description

The Rainbow Sundew (Drosera peltata) is a carnivorous plant whose sticky flower like petals attract and then attach themselves to insects before folding in on the hapless victim and digesting them. This particular example was about 5cm high and as yet had no success catching anything thus its perfect compliment of flowers. I found it on the rocky headland above Horn Point on the Sealers to Refuge Cove track at Wilsons Promontory, Victoria, Australia. Macro photography is a particularly fiddly business resulting in my walking companions soon loosing interest in my crawling form and descending to Refuge Cove ahead of me.

This shot along with 107 others is available in my book The Prom – Wilsons Promontory National Park, Victoria, Australia

For more shots from this area check out my Wilsons Promontory gallery.
