Caption

Carrion flowers (Stapelia sp.). These flowers are known as carrions due to their strong and offensive smell which imitates rotting flesh. They are pollinated by insects that would normally feed on dung, corpses and decaying vegetable matter. Decived by the smell into believing food is available, they lay their eggs on the petals.
