Macro Photographs Capture the Mystical Beauty of Carnivorous Plants by Joni Niemelä
Finnish photographer Joni Niemelä brings focus to the details found in nature, which are often overlooked. Featuring one of Niemelä’s favorite subject, a carnivorous plant called Drosera or “Sundew,” he takes us into a microscopic and intimate view of the unique plant.
Through Niemelä’s macro photography, we are able to see each droplet of morning dew collected by the Sundew, hence the name, and its alien-like anatomy. He creates a vibrant, yet mystical and moody atmosphere of the ravenous plant by the use of color and an unorthodox perspective..
