Bucket orchid

From PZ Myers' Pharyngula blog comes the link to this image of a "bucket orchid" (Coryanthes), originally posted at Environmental Graffiti, where you can read about the reproductive strategies embodied in this complex flower (see also the Wikipedia summary).

A hat tip to Mike B, for sending me the link.
