Sundew

That lovely little plant is a fierce eater of insects.  They lure insects in with the promise of sweet nectar, but those droplets aren’t sweet at all!  Instead, they act like glue, trapping the insect so that the plant can slowly digest it.  What a crazy thing to witness!

Isn’t nature grand?
