We know that nature is the primary source of all life forms and bizarre ideas, but do we know how surprising and even shocking her creations can be? Mimicry is a game of living organisms – they pretend to be something else than they are and they take advantage of that resemblance. The orchid is known as a pretty flower that men give to their halves when they want to seduce them or as a sign of deep attachment. But these extraordinary flowers have much more to offer us! Discover the rare orchid with our photos – it has extraordinary qualities. There are many orchid speciments that imitate certain animals, insects or everyday objects … There are bumblebee orchids, monkeys, hedgehogs, ballerinas, dancers, ducks, monsters and angry faces, slippers etc. When it comes to the rare orchid, it has a wide range of mimicry and here we have tried to collect photos illustrating the orchid’s phenomenal capacity to take unusual forms..
In some animals mimicry is developed for camouflage. They knew how to find an intelligent solution to hide from their enemies or to be able to watch for the prey while remaining unnoticed. But in the case of the orchid it’s different. Sometimes you can’t tell why she does it – why her lip can look like any other but not like a flower corolla? It is clear that if the orchid takes the form of a bee, it is because it wants to deceive another insect and attract it. The resemblance is so great that some bees, flies and bumblebees mistake the flower for a representative of their own kind and want to copulate with it. And they repeat the fault all their life. In this way the orchid ensures its proliferation. But why does a flower have to look like a monkey’s head, an angry person, a graceful ballerina, or some other playful thing? Perhaps this is mainly to ask questions about the power of nature when it comes to her smallest creations, to amaze us or just to charm us. In any case, it seems to us that these unique flowers are one of the many winks of God who only has the forms of nature to express himself!
