Aren't you jumping the gun a bit, Bucky? What with not getting the go ahead from the OP. Even though you are right, shouldn't you have waited for a "green" flag?

You're up.

oops, sorry, you're right buck.

i found the exact picture, though. i figured it was some kind of spider, and a search of "spider with red mandibles' gave me the pic.

ok, the plant and who it's named after.

prairie flax (Linum lewisii), named after Meriwether Lewis

I searched spider with red mandibles and couldn't find Buck's pic. Not until I searched ugly bugs

So do you want to go again..... without giving it away this time

Unless there was a botanist named Blue Flaxenheimer, I'd guess Merriwether Lewis of Lewis and Clark.
