Another shot from beautiful sweden.
I have presented this flower from holland with dew a few weeks ago, on Gotland however it was abundant. This plant catches fies with it's sticky leaves which then roll-up.

From what I heard in sweden, the swedes put his plant in milk to create a cream

Hello Jeroen,
Carnivorous but pretty one! Great colours and details on the hairs (with glu I suppose...). Hope they don't make cream with flies... Cheers,

Hello Jeroen,
Excellent image taken with wonderful colors and good clear BG.

Hello Jeroen.
Wonderful shot of this beautiful flower with lovely colour and sharp detail. The BG lets it stand out nicely. Superb natural light handling and exposure control. Excellent DOF, POV and composition. Best regards Siggi

Hi Jeroen,
Ik mis een naam bij de foto, maar ik neem aan dat dit weer het Vetblad is. Mooie heldere kleuren en een goede compositie. Uitstekende scherpte. Goede vage achtergrond. De foto komt een beetje 'saai' over, maar dat neemt niets weg van de goede kwaliteit.

Hi Jeroen,

this picture of that Pinguicula vulgaris is very nice and sharp with great colors!



Hola Jeroen

Una bonita flor y una bonita imagen, con esos colores estupendos..

Un saludo Antonio

Hello Jeroen,
A great macro of the flower of Pinguicula vulgaris, a plant quite common in Sweden. Fascinating details and lovely natural colours. It's very pretty but hard to photograph the whole plant as it mostly would mean lying down in the wet bog!! I don't know about cream but a deliciious youghurt-like mix has been made using these leaves.
TFS nad regards, Ulla

Hallo Jeroen,

mooie foto van het vetblad.
Ik heb hem nog nooit gevonden in Nederland.
Uitstekende plaat.


This is a marvellous photo of the Butterwort flower Jeroen. I was taking photos of these a couple of weeks ago, and I know the size of each plant, and how difficult it is to capture such a clear macro of the flower. They are often overlooked by botanists as they are so tiny, and I am sure that folks would tread on the plants. I have found only one area here in Norway so far where they grow.

Excellent details, which I wasn't able to pick up with my basic lens.

Groetjes, Amelia
