Fresh off the grill - I'd say this fly is well done! I couldn't resist the theme for this one. A hamburger seemed cliche. This seemed so much more appropriate! :-)

The trap on this Venus Fly Trap is only about 1.5 cm (3/4") long. If you look closely you'll see a fly that it has trapped. You might be able to see the outline of the fly's body, a wing and that fine dark line below the wing is a leg. Life ends. Life goes on.

Try it in 'Lightbox' . . . a little salt and pepper, some catsup. . . .

    I almost missed this one entirely and Venus Fly Traps are right up there for me with gyroscopes and 25 cent picture booths. This is an amazing capture.
