Real or Fake - Hanging Naked Man
I thought I might start a new series of post that I call "Real or Fake". I will post some unusual story or photo and let you know if the story/photo is something Real or Fake.
The first item in this little series is a photo of what is commonly called "Hanging Naked Man", see photo above - Some say it is just a photoshopped fake but after some quick research I discovered that indeed the odd flower is in fact real.
This orchid does bare a striking resemblance to a "Hanging Naked Man" ....completed with varying sizes of anatomy....does size matter? I guess not in the flower kingdom.
Orchis italica, aka the Naked Man orchid or the Italian Orchid is certainly real and grows in various locations in the Mediterranean.
