    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.

    Thanks for the pictures everybody! Has anyone ever seen the mouths get as big as lemons? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    Hey Jacko

    Thanks for the compliment. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] 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. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    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. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    I tried the black background like plantakiss. It didn't turn out very good, but here are the pics of my largest VFT [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

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