Sarracenia

Mr Beloved has a fascination with carnivorous plants.  The pitcher plants (Sarracenia family) have proved difficult – until a botanist friend told him that sarracenias really prefer vertically striped shade. Otherwise they burn very easily.

Love the super macro mode on the point and shoot (Canon Powershot A480) – neither of us could see the teeny spider web without it!  The part of the plant in this picture is less than an inch In Real Life.
