    Wow Allan, those are awesome videos. Were you around your plants waiting for that perfect moment when a spider would craw into a trap?

    Larry, yes...when I go out onto the patio I have learned to keep the camera within reach. I like to set out and have a cup of coffee in the morning and sometimes also in the evening before dark. I missed too many photo ops when something cool was happening and by the time I got to the camera, it was over. An example is when I was watching a fly climb around the mouth of a small S. rubra, knowing that there was no way that the fly could fall in. Then suddenly, the fly took off, went up about 6", did a half-loop, and crash dived (dove) into a VFT's trap. The trap snapped shut instantly, thus ending the fly's aerobatic routine. Like jhalaska says, VFT = 1....Fly = 0.
