Caption: Parasitic plant flower. Huge flower of the parasitic plant Rafflesia pricei on the forest floor. For most of its life, this plant exists as a tiny thread within its host, a type of vine. When mature, the flower erupts from the host. The bloom smells of carrion, which attracts its insect pollinators. It is one of the largest flowers known, and can reach a width of almost a metre. Photographed in Sabah, Malaysia, on Borneo.
