Veins that Pulse

Leaf veins glow bright red, seem to pulse with the energy they take from their insect meals. The theory is the opposite though. They may be more like highways to death, leading insects to the trap entrance. I’ve never seen a bug crawl along these “highways” though, so it seems more like speculation to me. From a human standpoint, this leaf is stunning.
