I had so much trouble thinking of what to post for this challenge. Photos of just numbers – not really, numbers on buildings – maybe a post on that later. I saw a photo and thought that a sequence would be good but what to use.
And then I found one photo, then another and suddenly I got carried away.
This was a week around my garden except for one photo. Having a rainy time, when the sun was almost out or I heard a bird call, I grabbed my camera and strolled around the garden. Enjoy my selection of some of the #Feathered Friends I found in a week in my garden.
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
