    This stapelia gigantea flower is a huge surprise in more ways tha one. Firstly it is an enormous flower about 30cms across & has a huge, slowly developing bud. How on earth I missed seeing it develop ie a total mystery to me. As I look in this area almost daily I do not know how I missed seeing it.

    The flies love it especially the large blowflies although smaller ones appear also. There were several on it at once but most flew away when I took these pics.

    The second stapelia gigantes flower now fully open complete with flies. They do love the aroma from these flowers.
