Bubbly stem by SqueakingShoeless Bubbly stem by SqueakingShoeless
A break from Nyssa extras: this was taken at the UW greenhouses. I honestly can't remember what plant this was, but if I ever remember to look, I'll let you know.

04/03/09: WHOA, a DD, and I'm barely even here anymore! Thank you everyone. If you would like to purchase this print (or any print), please note me first. I have updated files, and can offer other printing services at the same rates.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-04-01
I have deviated away from my gallery for today, and the one thing I jumped to feature is Bubbly stem by =SqueakingShoeless, the instant I saw it, I was blown away. Since then I wished I could feature it, and today I get the chance to. At first I thought it was a vector, but then i looked closure, it's mesmerizing, whimsical, soft on the eyes, and looks like a jewel, I can't help but stare at this refreshing piece of art. The artist played with the depth of field and colours beautifully. ( Featured by FaMz )

I believe it is a carnivorous plant, I use to have some of those. They catch insects with the sap. (Drosera) It is a passive trap.

It's definitely carnivorous. I believe that before it hits this stage, its ends are curled up with the sticky buds inside (or something - sorry, hard to describe). They're really cute either way. :D

Pizita Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2009
Yes, it curls slowly. Those are hard to grow where I live because it is desert.My country only holds one kind of carnivorous plant that has sticky leaves.

Aw, thanks. If you ever do decide to buy it, let me know first. I use a professional print lab these days, and can offer other sizes at similar/same rates. Plus, I'd actually get all the profit that way. ;D

Glad you enjoyed it!
