Beechdrops

Another saprophytic flower is beechdrops; like indian pipe they do not have chlorophyll to produce energy, but tap into the root systems of a host plant. In this case beech trees. Notoriously difficult to photograph this is the best I could do. Unfortunately I missed the blooming, but know where they are for next year.
