Sunday Stills: What is That #Aroma
If you happen to come across a Stinkhorn Fungus, Aseroe rubra, at first you may not notice anything strange. Then perhaps there could be some flies buzzing about. They are the fungi pollinators.
A Stinkhorn or Starfish fungi, starts out like an egg shaped thing which is the fruit emerging from the ground and then gradually opens up. After it bursts its way through the ground, the fruiting body also oozes out a gelatinous goop known as gleba, which contains the Stinkhorn’s spores. Apparently the gleba smells like the dead, rotting flesh of animals or dung. These smelly mucus mass are full of spores at the base of their arms.
Instead of a music video here is one of the Stinkhorn Fungi opening in time lapse plus a bit of history
Todays Prompt: Robin
How could I not post and share with a prompt like this
Here is a female Eastern Yellow Robin.
The male Eastern Yellow Robins are a bit more colourful
The little Rose Robins are a treat to see
And for something completely different a Robin Gordon Grevillea
