Zoltán Gergely Nagy - Harmony of flies

There is something immensely satisfying in observing nature and its mechanics. For me it is often the concept of 'beauty' that sums up these experiences, when everything just seems to be in its place. Even in this case, where some flies were rushing to slurp up the last remaining juices of a Stinkhorn. They will spread the spores of the fungus, as it uses flies instead of the wind to disperse them.
