Animal-Looking Flowers


I thought I'd talk about something a little different for this week’s blog. For some reason I have been thinking about the Toronto Zoo and their animals there and how interesting if animals and flowers can be connected.

So I started searching online and to my amazement, there are so many weird and unique flowers that resemble animals and have animal like features.

I would love to share my thoughts on what each flower looks like. And looking through all the images, I thought to myself, how awesome would these flowers look as a wedding floral bouquet or centerpiece. It would definitely be something to talk about around the table!

1. Dracula Simia (Orchid) - Monkey

2. Pecteilis radiata (Orchid) - Dove

3. Moth Orchid: Phalaenopsis - Bird

4. Caleana Major (Orchid) - Duck

5. Calceolaria Uniflora - Snail

6. Moon Orchid, Phalaenopsis amabilis - Tiger

7. Ophrys bomybliflora (Orchid) - Bee

8. Heliconia rostrata - Lobster Claw

10. Zebra/Horse

11. Tacca Integrifolia - Bat

14. Stapelia flavopurpurea - Starfish
