This flowering plant, the Psychotria Elata, attracts hummingbirds and butterflies by showing them some fairly seductive, and delicious ruby red lips. The flowers on the plant may attract humming birds, but I’m still confused by human lips attract the hummingbird? You would think you would see lots of humming birds and butterflies crashing into peoples’ faces to get at the perceived sweet nectar within. See my only found image of a butterfly feeding on a human face below the puckering flowers.
Okay, this may not be a butterfly trying to feed from the lips of a human, but it is cute.
Got any weird flower or butterfly images to share? Submit in the comments below.
