What could possibly be as innocent as a flower? Well - you never know: To those inclined to be suspicious, certain orchids look disturbingly like they are ready to take a bite out of you.

These particular specimens are some that I photographed years ago at an orchid show in the New York Botanical Gardens. Of course the teeth were there before the digital manipulation. If you don't believe me, have a look at the annual orchid shows yourself.

Finally an update! What a lovely carnivorous plant you’ve got here! So believable that it makes you want to hug them!

:-) Helle Jorgensen replies: "Ahh yes, it’s long been subject to my embarrassment and regret that I didn’t find the time to do any pictures. I hope that I’ll manage to do more before too long this time! Mind that you don’t get too many soft bits chewed off if you want to hug these!"
