What a pot of death this is, look at all the fly carcasses!!

Btw, here is a close macro I took where you can actually see the texture of dead lfs as well as the plant cells in these seedlings and U. subulata leaves. Anyone have any other ideas for macro shots?

That wasp looks interesting - well its leg does. post a picture when the trap opens (if it does open :s)

Macro shots...sundew leaf, utricularia flower, sarracenia, insects.....there are all sorts of things you could do really well in with macros.

I believe its a mud dabber wasp, we have a ton of those and I see them flying around all my cp for some reason, not sure why? Here is a pic I found via google of what they look like, the one's I see.
