Carnivory is a huge step beyond photosynthesis, which is what most plants make leaves for. The ability to attract, catch and digest animals requires complex morphological adaptations, resulting in a variety of fascinating features, shapes and colors. As a grower of carnivorous plants, photography serves me two purposes: one is to document the growth progression of my specimens, and the other is to try and show the unique beauty of these rare and delicate flesh eaters, with a particular emphasis on precision and extraordinary detail.
