Tunnel of Light

 

Dazzling bright “Tunnel of Light” insects see as they die. Stunning. Insects confuse the light from “leaf windows” with an exit, and collapse dead trying to escape through them. Twisted victory. Sarracenia minor.

Dazzling bright light passes through white leaf tissue on the back of Sarracenia minor leaves. Insects confuse this light with a false exit.
