Round-leaved sundew (Drosera rotundifolia)
This plant feeds on insects, trapping them with the sticky fluid droplets on the tips of its leaf hairs: Trapped insects are digested to provide essential nutrients missing from the acid moorland soils where these plants grow. The dark remains of insects are visible on several of the leaves above.
