Not my pic, but posted on another site. Taken in Colorado. Anyone ever see a white hummer before? And I don't mean the 4WD kind!

This is the Common Stinkhorn (Phallus impudicus). It gives off a foul odor that attracts carrion flies, which in turn help to disperse its spores. It is found worldwide, and appears to be particularly common in the Northern Hemisphere.

@JBtheExplorer Thank you for sharing — puts me in the Fall mood (my fav season). Here in Louisiana, if we see colors, it’s much later, and it seems that most of the trees around here are the kind that just drop leaves without a lot of color change.
