17 flowers that actually look like something completely different

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.

Just check out the 17 amazing flowers below which look incredibly similar to other things – from monkeys, to birds, to well… women’s private parts!
