Birth of a Sundew

Gerry's picture of a tiny sundew, its tendrils surrounded by sphagnum moss.

"Sundews have tiny cylindrical seeds, with a diameter not much greater than a human hair. The photo shows the seed on the right, with the shoot coming out near the end and splitting into three tiny leaves. Neat!"
