Cape Sundew, Drosera capensis, in Bloom in the Back Yard

Cape Sundew, Drosera capensis, blooming on the back porch.  The flowers are borne high up above the sticky, deadly, carnivorous leaves, likely so the pollinators don't end up as lunch.  I have a pot of these two types of Drosera capensis, one red dewed and one clear dewed, mixed in with Drosera spathulata and bladderworts.  I fill up a plastic tray with RO water once a week that I set the pot into.  The little gnats that they eat do the rest.
