Flowers Dominican Republic
To some, flowers are just there. Sometimes they catch people’s attention, but other times they’re stepped on or simply not seen. There is some truly beautiful stuff being missed though and that is why I decided to compile some beautiful flower pictures from the Dominican Republic.
Now, all of these flowers may not be indigenous to the country but I don’t have a PHD in flowers so bear with me =). Every flower is unique though and sports something to set it apart from the rest, whether it’s a smilie face, like the one pictured above, or a unique pattern and shape.
One species that I’ve become very fond of is Orchids. This is because of the designs that the flowers create. You can see faces or even full on figures like a bumble bee. Also, they are OLD! Some researchers date certain species to over 100 million years ago. That’s a long time for evolution to take its course and make Orchids look the way they do today. For more interesting facts on Orchids you can check out a post Live Science has done on the subject.
Flowers, like animals, all play the game of survival of the fittest. They need to adapt and either work with their competition to succeed or completely surpass it.. Plants have found and developed many ways to do this. If filmed correctly the world of plants is eerily similar to ours. So it seems those videos are no longer available for free watching but I found an entire playlist containing similar footage and facts., check it out below.
OK, enough writing, it’s picture time! =)
