Try to look at the bright side Alex. The caption could have read “the drosophila gather honey on an orchid.”
OMG! Huge FAIL!! My wife took her pictures off of iPhoto when she started to make money as a photographer. Wasn’t worth the 20 cents a download to have her reputation tainted by such unprofessionalism, such as this (my opinion, not hers).
Holy failure Batman!! Look it’s a bat on that pine tree flower!
Wow, they even got the phylum wrong! How the hell does one mistake a hummingbird’s wings for a fruit fly’s?
I didn’t even know flowers had internal fertilisation and such extreme degrees of sexual dimorphism.
Sadly, teh FAIL is all over the interwebs
Wednesday just got better.
Just thought of this…
Geneticists mutate the Drosophila all the time. Maybe it’s an experimental escapee that now looks identical to honey bee and has behavioral conditioning to collect honey bee… aha…
