July 6th, 2009 – Venus Flytrap

So my carnivorous plants have been rather neglected while I’ve been on modified bed rest.  When I only have a limited amount of up and about time, I’ve had to prioritize.  And they haven’t fallen too high on the priority list.   As I’m sure can be witnessed in these photos.  Still, I got to get outside for a short bit today so I took photos of a handful of things, including one of my venus flytraps.

Here it is in bloom.  It was hard to get a good photo of the bloom because the wind was blowing a lot and the bloom is on a very tall stem.  This was the best I could get, given the wind.

At least two of the traps have a nice happy red color.
Notice the left overs from previous meals… the left over bits from a fly and a daddy long leg.
