    When I see pictures like these (and at times in general pictures of not so well known animals and plants on Earth) I can easily imagine that, once a human sees alien life on other planets, and he's a specialist (xeno-botanic or xeno-biologist), that they might just see stuff that's "as alien as what we had on earth, and still similar to it"

    I think it was Neil deGrasse Tyson who said that alien life is so unfathomable to us because if you think of the strangest creatures on our planet. From the depths of the ocean or the smallest weirdest insects, alien life would be exactly that. Alien compared to anything we have ever seen, its why we have no concept of what alien life could be.
