Drosera rotundifolia, found in nature in Slovenian mountains (aprox. 1200 meters above sea).

The plant feeds on insects, which are attracted to its bright red colour and its glistening drops of mucilage, loaded with a sugary substance, that cover its leaves.

Problem at taking photos of this plant is depth of field - leaf has 7-8 mm in diameter and a couple of mm in depth. With this 1:1 macro shot (this shot is without crop) I managed to get only part of the leaf in focus, but on the other side, background is nicely blurred.
