Enjoying my stapelia flower

After waiting for 3 or 4 years for my little cutting to grow into an actual plant, I have my first stapelia flower. And I'm not the only one that appreciates it.

The first night after it opened, a slug came to check it out. I like how the slug and the flower have similar spots.

The flower has a kind of putrid smell, (but not too overpowering.) The flies like it. A green bottle is in the lower right corner.

Here's a big flesh fly. He hung around for a long time.

I love it when the bugs look like they're smiling!
