Pollination

It’s August, and the annual pageant of pollination is being played out at Kew Gardens.

While some plants rely on insects for fertilisation, others see them as dinner. The bee and the housefly have been trapped respectively by a Cape Sundew and a Venus Flytrap.

Clearly, the fly did not heed the warning.

Great not only do flies have to contend with plants trying to act all carnivorous like ...but also humans who think they are ooooh so funny.
