Caption: This unique plant, monotropa uniflora, produces not chlorophyl, and can grow in dark, shaded areas. It gets its energy through a parasitic relationship with trees, usually beech, tapping into their energy supply produced from their leaf system.

Wow, Wilma, how unique. It is rather attractive, but I hope it's not
harmful to the tree? That is, hope it's not a parasitic plant.

Thanks for sharing this one! Nice macro too, by the way.

These flowers are so small that it is difficult to photograph them well, but you did a great job!
