Flying Duck Orchid, Topham Track, Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Australia
Caleana, commonly known as the Flying Duck Orchid, is a genus of orchids native to Australia. While the appearance of the Flying Duck Orchid is fascinating, I found the orchid’s trigger mechanism that temporarily captures insects to aid pollination equally interesting.
So, Australia is a country that has not only duck-looking animals, but also plants that resemble a duck. Besides the bizarre looking, duck-billed platypus, Australia also has Caleana, the orchid that looks so much like a flying duck.
