Interesting article, @LuckyLady 🍀. Sorry I didn’t notice it this past weekend.
One quarter of a million different species of flowers.
In this visually dazzling talk, Jonathan Drori shows the extraordinary ways flowering plants—over a quarter million species—have evolved to attract insects to spread their pollen: growing ‘landing-strips’ to guide the insects in, shining in ultraviolet, building elaborate traps, and even mimicking other insects in heat.
@Denise I thought you’d like this flower from the talk—it’s intentionally trying to mimic a flying insect.
