Photographer Joni Niemelä proves that aliens are living with us right now on earth in the form of carnivorous plants in these stunning macro photographs. One of Niemelä’s favourite carnivorous plants to photograph is the Drosera, more commonly known as the "Sundew."

Niemelä's fascination with Sundews comes from their vibrant colours, something that he tries to capture in his macro photographs which he has been taking for the last several years. If you like these photographs then be sure to follow the photographer on Instagram.
