So beautiful...I wish we still had scientific drawings in textbooks (I had considered it as a career choice and then realized the futility of it in modern society).

And that Wild Raspberry looks like what I would call a Beach Rose.

Those are all so incredibly, ethereally beautiful. I would gleefully hang anyone - or all - of them on my wall.
