    I found this pic. I'd thought you guys would like to see it. The vft is in the lower left corner.



    Here's the caption under the pic.

    Drawing by William Bartram, Natural History Museum, London


    Dreamlike in its dimensions, Bartram?s drawing of American lotus blossoms reveals his scientific eye for detail and his romantic sense of nature. The Venus flytrap in the lower left corner is the first known drawing of this insect-eating plant, which inspired Bartram to exclaim, ?Astonishing production! . . . carnivorous vegetable!?

    That's really interesting Ozzy. Is there a date for the drawing? Beautiful drawing too.

    Thanks for sharing that. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
