I like the plants, but the thing that really does it for me, is the wonderful sad expresion on the poor creatures face. Beautifully captured.

You did a great job here...that expression on the face, the eyes...noticed this time the colour/mood you used is not quite the same as your previous posts?

Wow, great job. It's sorta of disturbing to watch the poor guy being taken over by that plant, but I still love it!

This is almost Bosch-like, very strange yet beautiful at the same time :)

Since now is the time of the fruitflies again it is the perfect plant to be considered buying :)

Your dark humor approach to topics is wonderful. Your technique is awesome, too!
