Another sundew!
Why, it is another sundew! I suspect that you are enough of a geek that I do not have to tell you that this is Drosera binata.

For what it is worth, it took me about fifteen shots before I was able to capture this image. The light in the forest was fairly dim, and I was shooting around f/22, so my exposures were about 3-6 seconds long and the damned Drosera binata leaves were waving like tourists on cruise ship.

Meanwhile, Beth and her posse had lost interest in the whip bird, and were photographing some exceedingly pretty orchids. Unfortunately, the perspective for the orchids was poor, so I did not try for them.
