    Helaimphora and the Housefly . . .

    Here are a few macro shots of an unfortunate and hungry housefly who happened upon an equally hungry Heliamphora heterodoxa x minor. The insect landed, fed at the nectar spoon (long enough for me to go and grab a camera, well in excess of five minutes), staggered, and fell backwards into the pitcher while I was focusing . . .

    WOW. Excellent shots Bella.

    You still wanna go through with that "tequila" - folliculata trade we mentioned a couple months ago?

    Thanks . . .

    I managed to find H. x "Tequila" a short time ago, for a seed-grown Nepenthes hamata . . .

    Darn. Maybe later? That folliculata was so tempting.
