I have no idea if the Night-flowering Catchfly actually catches flies. My books say it attracts moths, but apparently the guy who discovered it didn’t like “Night-flowering Catchmoth”. I do know that they close up by late morning and open again in the evening. It took me three hikes to get these pics — the first time I forgot the camera, the second time it was afternoon and they were all done for the day, and the third time (see below) it was evening after a cool rain and they were perfect.
