Nature Wildflowers in the Wild

Location
Southeast Idaho
Name
Dan
Aristolochia grandifolia, Manual Antonio National Park, Costa Rica. The flower emits an odor like rotting meat to attract flies which crawl into a long tube that makes a turn in the back that looks like a u trap in plumbing. The flower needs the fly to polinate it, but this is not a carnivorous flower as the fly is not digested and can escape.
