This is one of my favorite little plants, the Pink Sundew. This is a carnivorous plant, and a pretty one at that.
Found in wet pineland areas or bogs… nice semi-wet muddy areas, they can spread or be in clusters. This tiny little plant is only around 1-2 inches in diameter and can easily be overlooked and stepped on!
Those shiny dewdrops on the tips of the plant is nectar, very sticky nectar. This is to lure insects to the plant. They do not fold like the venus fly traps, instead the insects fluids are dissolved by the plant.
The Genista Broom Moths Caterpillar. These are tenting caterpillars similar to the Eastern Tent Caterpillars.
These caterpillars leave silk like strands from leaf to leaf and create a tent or canopy like web for their pupa stage. These moths have 5 instars (stages of life). Two stages are the caterpillar (orange and green), pupa and two adult stages.
