Flytraps regularly experience high temps, so it's not just that. If a VFT is suddenly thrust into direct sunlight, and they are not used to that intensity, they could "burn". In their struggle to adapt, the existing leaves will rapidly decline and die off, the traps and leaves will turn paler, and the edges of the traps may blacken. The new leaves that grow out will be accustomed to the new intensity of light. Don't worry if all the leaves die off before new ones grow, the rhizome has enough stored energy to grow new ones.
Looking at your pic, you do have some early signs of sunburn, but I wouldn't worry too much about it. Keep them moist and they'll be fine.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
