Yeah, that is real. Its got brilliant color and form. Amazing. Notice all those hair-like things on the horizontal leaves, as if to make it hard to hold on to if your a insect looking for nectar and fall into the digestive bucket in the center. I love it and it fascinates me on a evolutionary point. Such a strangely curious little flower. Its like a "jack-in-the-pulpit" mated with orchid and this is the offspring.
