International Garden Photographer of the Year; New Mornings

Leave a comment

Finalist in the Four Seasons; New Mornings section of International Garden Photographer of the Year for this shot of a Drosera Capensis unfurling.

Drosera Capensis unfurling

This variety of Drosera is tiny so a Canon 180mm macro lens was used to get right up to the unfurling frond. This knocked out the background made up of other carniverous plants. The sticky droplet in the unfurling frond is the reason I photographed this particular Drosera. It is part of a series I have been working on over the past year.
