Drosera Capensis

I took this picture in the Botanic garden of Leiden, I'm not sure the name I've put in the title box is the right one but if anyone knows I like to hear. Wikilink.

I don't know anything about the plant, but the way you have caught those water drops is impressive.

Wat een prachtige plant is dat, Dick. Ik weet niet hoe hij heet, maar ik ben niet zo goed in plantennamen.
Bedankt voor je bezoek. Sommige van mijn banken zijn niet in Nederland. Als ik een interessante bank vind dan neem ik er een foto van. Prettig weekend.

Ohh hey I truly like this small rosette, Dick. As I read more about it on wiki, its from the cape area of South Africa. Thanks to you for helping us to get acquainted with it:)

In meantime, I like the Christmas counter on your sidebar. Coming soon, so soon.

A stunning photo. Dick! If it's in the Botanic Garden, could you get hold of a phone number you could call for info.?

Nihal said...

Just a quick note.
Happy Sint Maarten Day to you and your fam, Dick. Blessings~

congratulations, beautiful picture :D

Dick said...

It's not very important to know the name, just enjoy the beauty of nature.

Yes Anna I do love the wonders of water, I guess this is some kind of gluely water to capture insects.

Thanks Nihal, I'm very surprised you know about St. Maarten.
