    Feed me!

    My Sarracenia pots attract fungus gnats, so I put my Drosera around them.

    Here's one caught in my Drosera capillaris x rotundifolia. Apologies for the flash failure:



    During the night the lights attracted a carpet beetle that also got caught:

    That's kinda amazing. How long did you wait between taking each picture?

    My camera has an interval timer that I can use to take timelapse shots. The only problem is I don't have the OEM off camera flash that has the power plug that turns off the flash between shots to save the batteries. I set the interval for 45 minutes for most of the fungus gnat shots, and I had to watch the time (count down timer on my watch) to turn on the flash.
    The D. capillaris x rotundifolia is a slow mover.

    Most of the shots were 45 minutes apart until I went to sleep, then it was 3-8 hours between shots (last 2 or 3 shots).

    The carpet beetle was about 3-8 hours between shots.
