    Awesome video Ben. I just love it!

    It reminds me just how cool D. capensis really is. I haven't grown one in years, but I had a blast feeding my plants all kinds of insects when I had them in my terrariums. Definitely one of the most reactive sundews.

    Wow, I didn't expect this reaction. Thanks!

    b.t., I've only done 2 manually so far, and so far this is only my third one which was done by my camera. Since they were done manually, they're not very spectacular. I'm only just starting to do this stuff, anyways.

    Nice work, Ben. The newest one is definitely your best so far. You now need to get a huge D. regia and throw one of those monster horseflies on it and time lapse that!

    Exactly what I was thinking.

    Heh yeah, I should do that.

    I was planning on making a very long time lapse of a Nepenthes pitcher developing; although of course, this would take some major planning. I've found that with my N. sanguinea, one picture a day isn't enough to track the growth. I figure if I want to use my new camera, the 60 minute interval should work.

    The problems here are of course battery life, photo period, and stability of the tripod. Battery life and stability can be a problem together, although I think I read in the manual that a power cord can be bought, so that would get rid of the battery problem, and reduce the problems with stability.

    I'm not sure how to go about with photo period. Any time lapse that tracks long term changes requires light all the time. I can't have half of the time lapse be in darkness, and then miss all that growth. So, I need to know if changing the photo period from 11 hours to 24 hours right away would be a problem. Would I have to be very meticulous with this, and change the light a little every day? If so I may not do this time lapse.

    Thanks,

    David Attenburough has some wonderful nep time lapses. I think they're still floating around on youtube. I dont have the link anymore though

    Would love to see the capensis one is slow motion.
