    Hello everyone - I am a photographer and usually enjoy identifying anything & everything I take pictures of. I have been searching everywhere trying to find something that looks like what I found but to no avail. It was found in a forest in West Virginia. Any feedback appreciated! Thanks.

    Hi Wanderluster,
    It looks a lot like wild blueberry. Nice pic! Good luck & watch for snakes! :)

    SOOOO lucky! I've yet to find living Ghost Pipes...they're just beautiful! Keep an eye out in this area and let us know if you ever see the red variety!

    I couldn't get to the link that MycoRob posted. You have a nice picture of an Indian Pipe (Monotropa uniflora). As they age, the "head" goes straight up and they turn black. In the spring you can see last year's black ones still standing. I found a nice patch of them last week.

    Saw them frequently during my youthful summers in the woods of southern New Hampshire.
