Under the sea or through the woods?

When I gaze at this photo, it takes me down in the Puget Sound about 100 feet.  It’s reminiscent of an amazing invertebrate dancing in the water, dazzling me with its bioluminescence.  But the truth is that there was no SCUBA involved in capturing the essence of this beauty.

This mysterious life is indeed a flower emerging through the forest floor.  After scavenging books and google to discover its name, I learned this enigmatic flower is commonly known as Indian Pipe.  This fascinating botanical lacks chlorophyll, thus explaining its stark appearance.  This deep in the forest with such limited light, it’s amazing that any kind of flower can survive.  I'm so thrilled to have discovered it.
