Butterworts are tricky species to photograph if one is to have both the flower and the leaves in focus.
You have managed to capture one that is nearly all in focus with good sharpness and colours. A specimen with a short flowering stem like this one does help. The lighting and natural BG are good too in this pleasing composition.
Well done and thanks,

Where we live we have fairly easy access to a marshland where Butterwort thrives but it's so hard to get a decent capture showing flower and leaves in one! You did very well here with the pretty flower and insect-catching leaves very nicely in focus. Natural colours too and well composed!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

such a unique and strange flower and plant. This is quite exciting and would say an orchid instead. The purple flower is well captured with seen tiny hairs surrounding the petals.
You have used good incoming light to emohasis on beauty and sharpness.
A lively composition.

This specie are on the Red list in Belgium and the Netherlands and one of the flower i Still not haven't found yet and so not photoograped.

A very intersting plant! I have never seen one before - have only seen some of the native sundews (Droseraceae) in the Cape fynbos.
Good detail and shaprness on the flower
