This Stunning Plant May Look Innocent …But in Reality it is a Vicious Carnivore

, ,

Finland-based Joni Niemelä is a fine art nature photographer, and his works mostly focus on the nature around us, especially the macro details that are often overseen. Since he picked up on macro photography several years ago, he has developed a fascination for alien-like plants named Droseras (also known as sundews).

About a year ago, Niemelä had published his first  photo series entitled Drosera, which features how these plants emit the most beautiful and vibrant colors. However, he wanted something more to contrast his first release, so his second series, Otherworldly Blues, came to life.

To give you a perspective on both of sundews’ beautiful and eerie side, the photos below are alternated between the two series.
