Hi,
 
I photogrpahed this plant on 7th January,2006.
 
Location: Dried area adjacent to the Jheel near Ballavpur Deer Park, Santiniketan, West Bengal. Actually I was there to photograph migratory birds. But as I tried to approach nearer to get a better position to photograph the birds, I saw this red coloured  plant. The colour of the plant was very attractive but at that time I had no idea that it was a carnivorous plant.
 
Flowers: Could not get better picture of flower (sorry).  
 
Is it Droserra burmannii? Kindly confirm.
 
Interested to know about this carnivorous plant.
 
 
Thanks,
 
DEBASISH JOARDAR
