I swear I'm not trolling. I ran across this pic on minds.com. I can't believe it's real. No caption or description. Anyone know what it is if indeed it's a real flower?

Those look real enough, and that they probably fell from the very large tropical tree in the background.

I have very little tropical tree knowledge to contribute toward an identification.
