    Jason, you are right, this spec. is quite big, so 70 cm tall. The flowers are big as well, almost 10 cm across.

    Mietek - I was thinking of something sort of like this: http://http://ih2.redbubble.net/imag...x550,075,f.jpg

    If I knew how to paste the image, I would. I hope you can get the link. My post wasn't intended to be negative at all, just a passing thought, since, to me, it looks like a winged creature crouching.
