Corpse Flower photos from HMNS

Corpse Flower at Houston Museum of Natural Science - HMNS CockrellJust got back from the Houston Museum of Natural Science (HMNS) where the boy and I visited the Cockrell Butterfly Center to see the famous Corpse Flower. (SEE HOW TALL IT IS)  It still has not bloomed, but it has fans and even merchandise. Then there is the media hype.

I asked the Corpse Flower if I could be its agent, but then some men in suits stepped up and told me they already represent it. Need to be quicker with the next Houston media sensation.

Oh yeah and don't ask for its autograph either.

Seriously there was a crowd there early to see the flower in the flesh (it supposedly smells like dead flesh too right?).

 The flower is housed in a tiny room right before the entrance to the butterflies.

There are cameras mounted near the ceiling. One has to be the 24 hour web cam I've heard so much about, the others appeared to be time lapse cameras. Do they have smell-o-vision though? That's what we need.
