Then we started back home, exploring the marsh as well.
As we were exploring, we found a quite a few frogs like this one.
And then we made one of our best discoveries. As we meandered along we went closer to a clump of marshy stuff so I could take a picture of a couple of flowers. Here's the clump we found.
On closer inspection I noticed that the clump seemed to be covered with a tiny little red flowers. They were really small, but they were everywhere. I looked around and each of the clumps had the same red shade to their bases. You can see them hiding between the blades of grass.
Here's nice close up, and maybe now you can tell what kind of tiny flowers these are.
Yup, if you recognized them, it's them tiny fly eating plants. Not the clam type, but they're covered with these long hairs, and each one has a drop of dew like liquid on the end. It's stickly stuff and traps bugs when they land for a drink.
Anyhow, it was an interesting discovery, especially since the marsh was full of it. I had no idea that this particular carnivorous plant lived in Canada. But at any rate, it was stuff like this that made this holiday one of the most enjoyable I have ever had.
