Poor flies! I certainly wouldn't want to be a fly!
The green color is so beautiful, vivid and eye-catching. The the amazing DOF helps this strange plant to stand alone in the frame and get all the attention!

Is this one of those insect-eating plant?! I love it and if you see it at first glance it could be a snake! :) Amazing photo with beautiful colors.
