One Reddit user by the name of OctopusPrime recently shared a photograph that had many not only confused but pretty fascinated.
The photograph sits under the subreddit NatureIsF**kingLit, and it shows a green-flower that somehow looks like it’s a group of hummingbirds—only they’re so tiny! So, did people actually check them out?
One Redditor shared this photo, and everyone was awestricken about it.

Finally, when a Redditor wanted to know why the flower was really so much like the hummingbird, one other user gave all the necessary answers and more.
The plant that got everyone’s attention is actually Crotalaria cunninghamii, although the Latin name might be quite a challenge to pronounce and memorize, that’s why people also refer to it as a green bird flower or regal bird flower. It is a species native to inland northern Australia. This plant grows well in sandy areas, that’s why it’s mostly found in sand dunes, along beaches, and in Mulga communities. The Birdflower was used by Aboriginal people to treat eye infections.
Some people were still a little confused about the flower, but others were quick to provide answers
