Fred is Full

Originally uploaded by shefightslikeagirl.
This is my Venus flytrap, Fred. I almost called it "Phred," but I already had a dog with that name. That black spot on the big trap in the lower right was a small black spider that Sevie found for me to give to Fred. But the best thing about this picture is the closed trap in the center. You see the spindly filaments jutting up and to the right? Yep, legs. That spider I found myself and initially tried to feed to one of the larger traps... but it didn't spring. So I gave it to the little trap, which was happy to oblige.

Fred is going to have to go dormant soon, for the winter. Spoils all my fun.
