Very nice photgraphs, Alexander! In your flower close-ups the characteristic shape of the styles (origin of species' name!) can be seen clearly, as well as the "pollination droplets", which this species produces readily. These droplets are not nectar, as some might assume, but serve for pollination (the pollen sticks on that surface) only. Some recent studies of mine indicate that in D. tubaestylis (and a few other scented Australian tuberous Drosera), this fluid has some osmophoric potential as well.
