    PlantAKiss, that's an amazing photo!

    How did you get that black background? Is it a black card, or 'Photoshop' magic?

    As you can see, I'm not good with photography!

    Just for fun, here is a pic of my clumping form VFT that I got earlier this summer.

    Enjoy

    Thanks for the pictures everybody! Has anyone ever seen the mouths get as big as lemons?

    Hey Jacko

    Thanks for the compliment. I like to shoot with a black background. It emphasizes color and helps to isolate details. I use a sheet of rich black velvet which absorbs light well in most instances. If there are any blotches or light reflections I correct them in Photoshop.

    Restinburk...if someone told you that the traps on a VFT get as big as lemons, they were pulling your leg. Two inches or a bit bigger is a good size trap and although I've heard of larger, no one has yet supplied a photo for proof. There was quite a discussion on this awhile back but I never saw photo supporting claims of giant traps.

    BTW...traps is the appropriate term. Flytraps aren't animals...they don't have mouths.

    Here is a common VFT growing in my outside bog.

    The Dionaea take up about half of the new bog with over 100 plants that are either seedlings or divisions of three VFT plants that I purchased in Berkeley in 1955. [/QUOTE]

    Holy moly! 3 => 100 plants!

    You should throw some dead minnows into the middle of that bog and I bet you'd have all those traps closed shortly.

    I tried the black background like plantakiss. It didn't turn out very good, but here are the pics of my largest VFT










    That is a 50 cent piece next to the traps incase you can't tell.
