    Wow! Did it curl around like that on it's own? Or did it have a little help? If not, that dew sure got a grasp on that fly!

    That capture method is most likely to draw attention to its carnivorous nature. Good job capturing that in photographs. Drosera regia can capture in a very similar manner.

    Yeah, I had seen photos of "the King" mangling prey like that, but never a capensis!
