Caption

Stinkhorn fungus (Phallus impudicus) recently emerged from the egg stage. The tip of the fungus exudes a glutinous gleba (spore mass). This has a distinctive foul smell which mimics carrion, attracting flies to land on the end piece. They suck up some of the gelatinous gleba, which contains spores, then fly away. The spores are passed out in their excrement, aiding their dispersal.
