The Dragonfly is caught by Drosera Intermedia which is a Carnivorous Plant. The Dragonfly looks crucified and is seeming to reach out and one can almost hear in a tiny voice "help me" like in the original black & white movie "The Fly" One can also observe the plant growing around its victim. A rather large prey for this small plant. Taken June, 2012 (the cameras settings are off a year) Part of Author's local exploration of Carnivorous Plants project.

Location: Manorville, Long Island, NY
