Stapelia Flower

Above is a photo sent to me by a customer and friend from Bakersfield. It's of a fly that has laid eggs on an amazing Stapelia flower. What happens is the flower's carrion smell attracts flies which often lay eggs on the flower. Sometimes even fly larvae that have hatched from the eggs can be seen on the flower. Nature at its finest.
