PRIMROSE BUTTERWORT (PINGUICULA PRIMULIFLORA), CHICAGO BOTANIC GARDEN, GLENCOE, ILLINOIS, FEBRUARY 9, 2011
Tamron SP AF 90mm DI Macro
1/45 sec. f22
This pretty dime-sized bloom is a carnivorous plant found in southeastern swamps in the United States. When an insect wanders into its yellow center, the butterwort oozes a sticky enzyme that traps and digests the bug. It's another shot done for my macrophotography class at the Botanic Garden.
