Cors Goch. Male Variable Damselfly.

Female Variable Damselfly

Female Large Red Damselfly and Lesser Bladderwort Utricularia minor. This charming plant is related to the butterworts and has no roots, just leaves which have tiny bladders that trap small invertebrates by using a vacuum mechanism. The animals are then digested for nitrogen compounds! Just to rub salt in the wounds, insects are also used to pollinate the flower!
