    Very good Sandra, I love this one! The picture is full of tension and mystery and the very limited sharpness works out well. The only bad thing is that I am extra sad now that I missed the NPB weekend ;-)

    @ Theo
    You know ... we worked hard in order to make you all sad that you've missed it ... so that we are the whole group at the next meeting. :)
    @ Jost

    I've always though that droseras are really big ones - like many cm. I was suprised by my brother when he said that you must go to wetland for looking something red/green plants living out of there. I went and made it sure (with tamron 17-50) that you have to have good seeing if wanna see droseras.

    This photo is absolutely amazing! Oh, I've to go to school, but maybe I'm able to go photographing those beatiful droseras at the night..;)

    Well done, a marvellous photo of a Drosera! The dew on the background creates a deeper and wider dimension on this image, but the small glue drops on the first plan, well focused; are just amazing!
