The pictures may be incorrectly named, but not necessarily. Google  
Images shows pictures that are anywhere near the requested terms, so  
the photo may be of anything.  An example:  a web article about plant  
hunting lists lots of species in very dense text, and a photo of one  
of the plants is put nearby.  When any of those names is searched  
for, the one close-by picture is going to be offered by Google Images.
