Stinkhorn Fungi

I came across two of these common Stinkhorn Fungi last week whilst out walking and as they were close together and in very different stages of development/decay I thought it worth popping home to get my tripod and trying to get some decent shots with adequate depth of field.

One had lost the green slimy top and was no longer proving attractive to the local fly population whereas the other exuded an awful stink which is how I came to find them in the first place!

It is also fairly obvious how they come to have the scientific name of Phallus impudicus!
