This is a lovely little pygmy drosera. Shots were taken with a Venus/Laowa 60mm f2.8 on Fuji x-t1.

Great images.
Do i notice a lack of light in the lower left corner of the 1st picture?
When you make the most fantastic discovery, a lot of people want a piece of it...

Thank you both for the kind words!
It's such a neat and beautiful plant. One interesting aspect of Pygmy drosera is that they readily propagate asexually by developing gemmae, which are under pressure so that when rain hits the plant they are shot off and disperesed- when it starts producing them I'll make sure to take pictures.

Nicovb you are correct about lighting. I was just playing around trying to do some backlighting as it really causes the mucilage droplets to shine.

It is such an interesting plant, and great photos of course, that I did a quick look-see at this Wiki article. A lot of interesting info there. Esp. noted that this pygmy sundew is unusually large at ~ 2" across the rosettes!

I'm here to find and record those blithey toves.
2016: still true, would like to see them
