the original caption: "'Orchids photographed by Ana Retamero Olmos. A winning entry in the GDT- European Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2011 competition. These two little pink men arm in arm are actually the flower heads of the Mediterranean orchid Orchis italica. The English name "naked man orchid" describes the shapes of the blossoms very well indeed. After I took some photographs of the whole plant, I kept going into more and more detail until I finally found these two blossoms."
The naked man orchid or Naked fairy orchid,scientific name Orchis italica its a purple flower that blooms in groups,means instead of blooming seperately all the flowers together make a group that looks like a bigger flower,like marigold and the flowers perfectly resemble a human shape with black eyes,two legs and hands,their other two petals look like wings or ears of that human shape.... don't this two flowers look like two fairies?

Caleana major, the Flying Duck Orchid is a small orchid found in eastern and southern Australia. This terrestrial plant features a remarkable flower, resembling a duck in flight. The flower is an attractant to insects, such as male sawflies which pollinate the flower in a process known as pseudocopulation.
