Carnivorous?


Today I was still processing images from the Island Mountain Round Up. I took a break this afternoon and photographed a few Garter Snakes in the backyard pond. While I was lying on my belly by the pond I noticed a Hoverfly land on a Jasmine flower to feed. UH Oh! I thought to myself. Sure enough within seconds it was trapped by the probiscus deep into the flower.It was stuck and couldn't escape. Both my kids and I have found numerous hoverflys that have been trapped this way by the Jasmine flowers. Do the flowers need protein? Are they carnivorous? I have researched it a couple of times online and I can't find anything about this fact. If you know or find any information. Please let me know.

God bless,

chris
