It’s my last week in the Herbarium for a while. Next week I’ll be moving to the Entomology department. Very excited. I’ve started drawing during my lunch breaks. I love keeping visual records of specimens- and while I can take photos, there’s just something much more enjoyable about drawing the specimen.
This particular specimen is from Cosmo Melville’s collection. Ormosia is part of the legume family, which includes beans and peanuts, but unlike its edible counterparts, the seeds of Ormosia are highly poisonous.
