Mimosa pudica is a plant with “live” leaves

Under the Windows of the hotel and located a palm grove, I left to hunt with the camera on all living creatures: insects, birds.

Among grasses, growing under the palm trees I came across this unusual plant. It has a recognizable appearance: short, dvojakoperistye leaves and pink ball-shaped flowers. The most interesting thing happening when you touch the leaves, the plant quickly collapses, folds into a compact form, pressed to the stem.

Behaves Mimosa pudica (lat. Mimosa pudica). Homeland of this plant is South America, but now it can be found in many places, including in Thailand.
