It not only apparently smells like rotten meat, it resembles it as well. I like your choice of both composition and low angle view.

Fine composition and color - and a curious fungus.

A fine view of this smelly stinkhorn variety, Kostas. Wonderful shape and form!

Great shot of this poisonous oddity. I've never seen a mushroom with such a strange shape.
