Set my VFTs outside for some sun and fun yesterday.  I got these pics, also.

The larger fly above got caught when he tripped the trigger hairs by chasing off the smaller fly which gets caught below.

I'd originally planned on taking picks of all the flies that were buzzing around my CPs like they were some sort of buffet. Then I noticed these two flies inside the first trap and kept an eye on them. Almost missed the second one. It was caught about a minute after the first one.

Hi Darcy, no that's a Red Dragon I got from Exotic Gardens last summer. For some reason it put out the long skinny petiols at the beginning of winter as did the Green Dragons. They are about the gangliest looking plants I've ever set eyes on. I'm hoping that the petiols will widen out this summer.

Those are some great pics. I wish I could get some pics like that but I only have baby flytraps.

BCK, I LOVE the pics. I believe you can qualify for pro status now.

I dont think that the petioles will widen during the summer if they didnt during the spring and winter. I still like their looks, gangly or not!

Don't let the size of the photos fool you.  The trap on the Red Dragon is about an inch, but the trap on the typical in the second pair of pics is just bairly ½" (1.4cm).

@Colieo: I don't know about the pro status.  I just happened to be at the right place at the right time with my camera in my hand.  I missed shots like this several times last summer.

How weird, did the photo change the color or do you have an unusually orange dragon? Mine is more maroon and purple, like most of the photoes I've seen.

Pictures are really deceiving

. I thought those were huge traps you had going. They look really healthy and a nice red color. So the flies are not that big I take it? I would love to one of my vfts catch a fly. That is sweet you caught the flies in action like that. Thanks for sharing!

Darcie, I'm not sure why they appear orange colored, but they appear marroon and purple with a green lip at the base of the teeth on my monitor. If they look orangish (sp) on your monitor I can understand your confusion.

Regals are orange colored huh?  I'll have to keep an eye out for one.  Orange is my wifes favorite color
