The Internet is full of wonders, from memes to stunning photographs, an endless ocean of tweets to political manifestos. People are free to share pretty much anything, and while some use it to share things that they should probably keep to themselves, others sometimes drop a thing or two that absolutely mesmerizes the online public.

One Reddit user by the name of OctopusPrime recently shared a photograph that had many not only confused but pretty fascinated. Dropped in the subreddit NatureIsF**kingLit, the photo showed a green flower that resembled a collection of tiny green hummingbirds.

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 green birdflower or regal birdflower. 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.

I love taking pictures of flowers. Sometimes the leaves are just as beautiful. A great time is when the sun comes out after a good rain
