I was walking outside in the morning. For a couple of days I saw the Florida fungus, on the ground, swarmed by flies. I thought it was fascinating! The ones I saw where a much brighter red than this. See also the link that tells all about it!

WOW that's super cool! I like how it uses it's stink to attracts the flies that end up "pollinating" for it.

That's like that big flower that blooms every so many years that also smells awful. They show it on the news occasionally. They call it the corpse flower:
