More Strange and Carnivorous Plants

Next is the Carnivorous Rose – otherwise known as Pinguicular Florian. This one uses tiny sticky droplets to trap insects unfortunate enough to land on its’ delicious petals, and promptly dissolves and absorbs them. Perhaps a big enough flower could digest a bird …..

This first photograph was taken when i propped the finished painting up against the windows, and the light beamed on in through the blinds and made magical.
