I photographed these recently by the side of the road in Lesmurdie, Western Australia. It’s only the second time I’ve seen a trigger-plant, the first time was by the side of the road near Cape Naturaliste when we were on our honeymoon. That was a different variety.
Trigger-plants are pretty cool in that they use their triggers for pollination. They lure insects in with their bright colours then when the insect sits down the flower whacks it with it’s little lever arm and leaves pollen on the insect which it then takes to another flower. Genius!
You might’ve noticed I’ve kind of abandoned the photo challenge. I have some personal things going on, so I’ll turn to the list for inspiration, but I’m a bit over it for now.
