    You don't need to use the time lapse technique for a vft closing on a bug. Time lapse is really easy in concept, hard in execution (sometimes). Place your plant in a place where it won't get moved. Place the camera somewhere (tripod preferably) where it won't get moved. Then decided on the time interval between shots. 1hr, 1day, 1 week, 1 month etc.
    If you're doing this outside, it would be nice if you can do it at the same time each time, that way the sun will be in the same position. Really quite easy, what sucks is that you won't get to use your camera for a while [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
