indian pipe

Indian Pipe is the name of the wildflower that I spotted in the woods nearly two weeks ago!  (Thanks, Erik!!)

I know it may seem silly to some... to want to know what I'm looking at, to identify, to read about its characteristics and meaning, and to try to commit it to memory... for the next time we meet along the trail.

But, it makes complete sense to me...
I took so many photos along the trail that day, but we had some miles to cover.  I wish I had spent some extra care to fix the aperture on this one for a deeper depth of field.  Next time I see it, I will.
