Catchfly Caught a Fly

CIMG6167

This is a wild flower called Fire Pink – known also as Catch-fly. Bugs get stuck in the white fibers of the stem. Fire Pink is not a carnivore flower – it just like to catch those buzzers 🙂 but does not eat them!
Look carefully to find the tiny fly.

    So pretty. Like a starburst and a shooting star.

    To answer your question, the ship’s wheel was in an antique shop in a little town in the California Gold Country called Murphys.

    I guess it just holds the fly for a passing bird or spider. Or not. It is a beautiful flower though.

    Very pretty flower. It looks delicate and yet it must be lethal to the insects it catches.

    When this flower is open, our imaginations can go wild, sort of: it could be a spinning propeller, a ruby starfish, or even a red asterisk…the mind works well with such natural beauty!
