|The cobra lily - aka California pitcher plant|
Little Shop of Horrors. Images come to mind of the monster crying out “Feed me, Seymour!” and then swallowing victims whole (or perhaps chewing a little bit). Audrey II was an overgrown Venus flytrap, however, which is an entirely different family of plants with very different eating habits.
|Looking up into the trap - the last view many insects have of the outside world!|
|Digested prey inside leaf base|
|Leaf showing red veination, a common color morph.|
|Preferred habitat - meadow seep on mountainside|
|Flower developing into seed pod, indicating pollination|
