Actually, a fly can?t resist?
It comes and lands on the stinking spadix, sucks it. The most it goes down, the strongest the taste?
The insect finally reaches the narrowing at the spadix bottom, meets a fence of hair, forces it to enter the spheric receptacle, where stands the cluster of tiny male (up, dark brown) and female (bottom, yellow) flowers. No petals.
Fly finds here the stinking nectar it?s looking for, drinks and then tries to get out... Like a drunk trying to find his way out of a bar? Wobbly. Quite hard, especially when the door (here the hair fence) seems to open in only one way?
The insect moves around and gets covered with the pollen from the male flowers.
