ABC Wednesday: V is for Venus Flytrap

Photobucket

The trap has caught a fly, digested it an opened up again. Along came a Daddy Longlegs and tried to make a meal of the fly leftovers. Not such a brilliant idea.
What else does V stand for? Find out at ABC Wednesday

Ah, many of us have to learn the hard way! Guess it applies to the insect world as well! Terrific shot! Think I'll wait a while before I have lunch!!

Have a great day!

I guess the Daddy Long Legs will end up as dessert.
Great original post for the letter V.

Excellent shot. I've never seen one of these in real life but your photo makes me think I have! Thank you!

there was a disc jockey on the old TV series WKRP in Cincinnati called Venus Flytrap.

BTW, I'm a librarian, too.

Amazing photo! We had a small Venus plant once, and I kept watching for it to capture an insect, but never saw one. To see a fly and then a spider fall into its clutches is quite a sight! Great choice for V!

Most interesting plants - children, being naturally bloodthirsty, love them! Great shot if rather unfortunate for the spider.
I've never had much luck with insect-eating plants . . . must try harder!

I'd say 'V' also stands for 'victims'! LOL! Nice pic!
