Photo-a-Day (Friday, 27th November, 2015)
I have a fascination for fungi and Peter takes pics for me when he walks our Ben, but none as good as this!
Quoted as recognisable by it's foul odour. " It stinks" No further comment needed.
Some folks consider them a delicacy, though I wouldn't even consider eating one.
Must be ideal growing conditions as there's been a lot of fungi sprouting up this Autumn.
These Stinkhorn mushrooms are knows as Phallus impudicus and are a rare sight in Wigan, so you viewers of Photo of the Day have been having a real treat today.
PS they eat them in China.
Mick,they'l eat ought dead or alive.
