Drosera Capensis - Reverse Lens
Piccica - Bellissima e letale. *-*

Drosera Capensis is a small carnovorous species of sundew, from Cape in South Africa.  It has strap-like leaves covered in coloured tentacles. On the top of this tentacles there is a little ball of sticky mucilage that traps little insects. First the insect are trapped, after the leaves roll lenghtwise towar the center. 
In the next to last photo you can see two ants, one recent and recognizable, the other skeletal without nutriment.

Quick, gorgeous, lethal.

All the photos except the last one are taken with Reverse Technique, Canon is optimal to do this also without ring adapter! 
THERE is a video that can show you how to make this kind of photos!
