    Hi All,
    Last week I set up a mini bog on our deck and today just added some water to it.After I did I saw a fly land on my S. Judith Hindle and watched it climb around the outside. It had it's mouth/toungue out and was tasteing it's soon to be last meal.I kept telling it "go in the funnel"
    It made the turn and sat at the lip and then went in. I could see it's head and then it must have lost it's footing and down into the acid pit it went.It all took maybe 10 minutes but sure was cool to watch.
    I know telling the story here amongst you folks will be fine,but, I know not to go to a bar telling the story,LOL
    Man, I love this hobby [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Scott, speak for yourself. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]


    I have done the same.
    I might have at one time or another over the years helped the fly to the correct location if not able to do it himself.

    Not only are you weird, but I also imagine you dress funny.

    That aside, I once watched a big fat fly drink nectar from the lip of a very skinny S. rubra. The fly got its head caught in the opening, and the only thing it could do was slowly force itself toward the bottom of the pitcher. A one way journey to nowhere--I reckon.

    MMMWWAHHHH!!!! Hey at least you did not ask if your Psychotic. People seem obsessed with asking how many plants I have after saying individually about 300 and species a little over 100 they get a little frightened. I don't even have that many, yet. I have helped many a fire ant find their way into my inside plants "mouths". I love it. Die you evil.... Hmm a new story to tell in a bar or other place (whihc is more likely). I had not though of telling about the death of a bug. Good. Good.

    My plants are all indoors, so I carry a jar in my coat pocket to catch bugs with to feed to them.

    Sometimes its fun to backlight the pitcher or trap with a flashlight or similar and watch the bug struggle in sillouhette.
