Indian Pipe In the Woods

Walking though the woods every day as I do, looking for stuff to weave, you would think I have seen just about everything I could see back there. But this Autumn, I came upon some amazing little "flowers" that I have never seen before.

This year has been very wet. Have you ever seen Indian Pipe?

Also called Corpse Flower, it is a fungus, and I was amazed at the variety of colors, sometimes growing in close proximity to each other.
 They range from white to pink to red and even purplish tones!

 These are just a few that I was able to snap photos of, in the growing light...
