Scented Sundew

BOTANICAL

Drosera whittakeri is noted for its large perfumed flowers and the way it plants its own seeds by burying spent flowers in the ground. This is a long exposure taken on an overcast day. The image shows fully open flowers, spent flowers and one self-planting spent flower at far left.
