Fun-gi :)

Imagine my surprise when these guys  :)   popped up in the garden.

They are members of the stinkhorn family (Phallaceae) of fungi.
The stinkhorns (as the name suggests) smell revolting and attract flies and other insects to help disperse the spores.

Here is another type of stinkhorn, the shape reminds me of a starfish.

Hope you liked today's post.

Today I am showing you just one of the many types of weevils found here in Australia.
 Some weevil species are a serious pest that threaten trees, vegetable and grain crops.

This particular weevil reminds me of one of the muppet characters called 'Gonzo'

Cheerio for now,
