That's an Appropriate Name!

Challenge #73 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
In this challenge show us examples in nature, of plants, flowers, insects or spiders, etc., which have been given names which describe them well. The names will not be their scientific names, but have been adopted into common usage because that is what the subjects looks like. Examples which come to mind include lady slipper orchids, bachelor's buttons, bottle brushes (callistemons,) powder puff tree, crab spider, rhinoceros beetle, cobbler's pegs (Bidens pilosa), chinaman's hat limpet.... For those whose language is other than English, please use your local names for your subjects, and we will Google a translation. Where possible, the subjects should be outside in their natural environment. Macro and close-up shots welcome. Size 1,600px MAXIMUM.
