No, It's not my photo. I wish it was. I love this photo. I saw it over at CP Photo Finder and I thought the forum members would enjoy it.

Very nice pic, my bet is that the trap was smaller not able to catch that big fly, so the fly made its way out with its body, but moving to get out it moved the trigger hairs more putting more pressure and the trap sealing even more, and you can figure the rest out with the pic :lol:
