    Trap Sealing Timelapse

    I feel guilty about cross-posting these from my Carnivorous Adventures thread, but meh. I figure it makes sense.

    Not terribly exciting, but it pretty much accomplished what it set out to do: show the sealing mechanism of the good ol' flytrap.



    Music is Chopin's Nocturne in E Minor, Op 72 #1.

    PETA's going to have your head for this one! :P
    Nice. But is it really a timelapse or just a video of the trap closing? I was hoping to see it go from the margin sealing and the teeth turning outwards to the point where the trap fills with digestive fluid and constricts. But yes, I agree with the others, getting a shot of it opening back up would be cool, although kind of tough - I won't blame you if you miss it.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Well, it's a video of the trap closing, and then there's an obvious change in the color/exposure and whatnot; that's where the timelapse begins and it was a picture every ~8.5 seconds for about an hour. I'd love to get it all the way through to the digestive goodness, but the battery won't last that long and I can't afford an AC adapter right now. I also probably won't be able to get the trap opening for the same reason. That's a pretty slow process, and I just seriously doubt I can get enough juice out of a battery for it. ;c

    Some day, I'll have an AC adapter and maybe even a proper intervalometer - I don't know how long a freshly charged set of batteries will last a TI-83+ running that script.

    I'd also love to get flowers blooming and closing back up, the ones that only last a few hours - D. capensis, for example, maybe D. aliciae. Problem is waking up early enough. XD

    I've been meaning to do some fiddling with 555 timers anyway. If you reimburse me for the parts I'll build you one.
    I guess i didn't notice the change to timelapse - totally fooled me! You must have a nice tripod, because I was waiting for a little frame jiggle or something and there was nothing to tip me off.
