Flowers are the reproductive organs of plants, and exist for one main purpose - to attract pollinators such as insects or birds.
But plants can be amazingly deceptive - some are able to mimic the smell of insects to attract them.
Flowers, can also, clearly, appear in a myriad of different and incredibly impressive shapes, colors and size - and at times, the combination of these look strangely similar to other things.
