Bacteria on your tongue.

Even such as Richard Feynman has to choose his words carefully. In his meditation he says evolution has a purpose.

"The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate...."

His word choice does have a simplicty that's harder to see in "A flower's color is a consequence of certain insects' perception of color."
