A 1 Metre in diameter 'Flower'!

My fellow nature lover Ms AO send me
this pic taken from her recent trip to North Borneo, Sabah.
Rafflesia with a diameter of 1 metre!!!!!
and added "... it grows in the wild but the local people take care of it "
ITs a parasitic fungus - not really a flower by definition.
