Photographed at Kondane near Mumbai. I had no idea how to compose this image :-(, so it is pretty much a record shot. However, I wanted to share it as I found this species particularly interesting.
Clathrus sps., commonly known as the shuttlecock mushroom. A member of the Stinkhorn fungus family, though unlike its relatives, it doesn't emit any foul odour. Found growing in clusters on dead wood.

Tv (Shutter Speed) 1/60
Av (Aperture Value) 3.5 (forgot to narrow it :-P)

Cropped, and levels adjusted.
Thanks, C&C welcome.
