19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Globally rare event of a corpse flower in bloom
Planted in 2006, the last time this corpse flower bloomed was in 2014. Once it opens the smell is like that of a corpse. That’s where it gets its name. You can even see swarms of flies nearby.
