[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
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.

Hello Natley,
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.
