|My friend Naas Oosthuizen found this plant growing on the grass in front of the mine gate under a Knob Thorn tree. We have never seen this before and unfortunately by the time I got to it, it had dried out a bit in the heat of the day. Can anyone help us identify it? I will place some of the photo’s Naas took earlier in the day when it was still fresh. I first thought it could be some fly catching plant but there was a spider and some other insects in it. It also has some seeds in the middle. In this photo you cannot see it clearly but I will place more photos in the workshop where you can clearly see it. We will appreciate it if anyone can help us with the id.|
Enjoy and comments are welcome.

At this point I cannot ID it but I have some friends that is fundis on plants of our bush-veld. Quite a peculiar plant, wish I could have seen it myself first hand. Maybe it could help if you could give s approximate size, i.e. length, etc. Back to your photograph, - excellent detail and sharpness with the orange colours explicit against the green BG. Well done.
We were at the Marulani Kloof camping site this weekend and we caught a Boomslang, the largest I have seen in my life time, and under Gerrits caravan. As we did not have a tape measure we measured it against my length and it turned out approximately +63 inches.
