Caption: Sundew plant leaf. Part of a leaf of a Drosera capensis carnivorous plant. Insects are trapped and digested on the glandular hairs on the leaves, with the droplets of digestive fluid giving rise to the 'sundew' name. The insects are used to increase the plant's mineral nutrition, as sundews grow in mineral-deficient soils.
