Mirror Bee Orchid Flower

Horny male insects, thinking that the petals are a female, land on them and engage in fruitless attempts to copulate “pseudocopulation
During the barren act, the insects’ heads or bodies contact the orchids’ pollen sacs, which break off and attach to the insect
The frustrated insect flies off, but soon tries to copulate with another orchid, which puts the hitchhiking pollen in contact with the new orchid’s stigma
Mirror Bee Orchid also called Ophrys speculum
