Carnivores

No, not animals in Africa but -PLANTS, right here in America.  A few plants are carnivorous, most familiar is probably the Venus Fly Trap.  Most grow in bogs and right now the US Botanical Gardens next to the US Capitol building in Washington DC is having a special exhibit of these plants.  We spent part of a beautiful summer afternoon there recently and here are a few of the pictures.
