The scientific name of this flower is Calceolaria Uniflora or Darwin’s Slipper Flower, discovered by Charles Darwin in his voyage around South America.
But I am sure you could find another nice name based on its appearance

From Bug Addiction - Confessions of a Bug Addict
“This morning I found this awesome Giant Leopard moth on a wall beneath a light. When they are disturbed they raise the body, lift the wings and show the stunning bright colors of the thorax and abdomen. I’m sure like other Arctiinae (Tiger and Lichen moths), these colors scream “I sequester nasty chemicals and if you eat me, you will get sick”!”

Lichens can be found in abundance in New England forests, growing on surfaces like trees and rocks. Lichens can be classified based upon their appearance, and descriptors such as crustose and filamentous are used to describe their growth form. The green lichen in this picture is foliose because of its slightly leafy appearance.

Underside of a gecko’s foot. Those ridges are full of thousands of tiny setae, ‘hooks’ that allow these lizards to grasp onto nearly any surface, and in any orientation. Spider-Man employs a similar morphological adaptation. (at The Field Museum)

Gecko feet are waaaaaay near the top of the list when it comes to awesome animal adaptations.
But they don’t really “hook”, certainly not like Spider-Man does, anyway. Each of those setae is just one-tenth the width of a human hair and contains hundreds of tiny projections that are each less than half of a millionth of a meter wide. To put that in perspective, that means each projection is as wide as just two human chromosomes. That’s small.
Because they are so, so, so tiny, the geckos use atomic interactions and Van Der Waals forces to hold themselves on the wall. They are literally using the attractive forces between atoms to walk on the ceiling, with no liquid or adhesive to help. The , which is 1,000X cooler :)
I featured them in this video on Animal Superpowers:
