This little carved cherry tomato nosegay from my plate at Azteca Restaurant is as close as I could get to a flower shot today.

Carrion Flower: Flower of the Day, Jan 10, 2018

 

STAPELIA GIGANTEA–one of a few flowers that smells like rotting meat and so attracts mainly flies.  The purpose, however, is not for the flower to feed on the flies, but rather for the flies to pollinate the flowers.  


(I loved the similarity of the starfish photo I used in my last post and the shape of the Carrion Flower, so had to put them together in this post.)
