Close up of a Sundew (Drosera) plant in my garden.
From Wiki:
These members of the family Droseraceae lure, capture, and digest insects using stalked mucilaginous glands covering their leaf surface. The insects are used to supplement the poor mineral nutrition that sundews are able to obtain from the soil they grow in. Various species, which vary greatly in size and form, can be found growing natively on every continent except Antarctica.

Handheld, with Canon twin lite flash.
PP: Cropping, Level adjustments and colour saturation, Frame and Signature all using PS CS3.

A fascinating and interesting shot. I love the droplets on the stems and the colours. Its lovely and sharp and vibrant tfs.


wonderful macro!!nice colors ,good POB and sharpness, beautiful details
well done

Wow! Beautiful shot! The colours, reflections within the droplets, all look great. But I feel may be you could have cropped a little on the upper side and included a little more in the bottom. Anyways, great work.

beautiful and artistic close up, TFS Ori

Bonjour Charles,
Intéressante macro par la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs ; il est tout de même domage que le sujet soit amputé dans le bas de la publication par un cadrage trop serré.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Charles,
Perfect macro with wonderul colours and details. I wish I had a flower like your one. TFS.
Best Regards,

A very attractive image, very nicely composed, and the selective focus is very effective. Beautiful!
