Indian Pipe is a strange plant that appears to be more like a mushroom than a flowering plant. It gets it nourishment from fungi underground which in turn gets nourishment from trees. It has a variety of common names including Ice Plant, Corpse Plant and Fairy-smoke. For lots more information scroll down to the lower part of this site:

The plant is fairly rare and i don't find it every year but I have found several this year.
