Quote – Holmes on ‘Entomology’
” I suppose you are an entomologist ? “
” Not quite so ambitious as that, sir. I should like to put my eyes on the individual entitled to that name.
No man can be truly called an entomologist,
sir; the subject is too vast for any single human intelligence to grasp.”

Excellent views. I have not seen anything yet, that looks connected like this plant. Something you'd find in the macro world. I haven't managed a decent stack yet either. LOL
