Earlier this week, in fact it was probably Sunday, I was walking around a lake in Dayton, MD that I go to frequently, these days taking pictures. I happened to pay more attention to the plants and round that day and noticed this white thing. Yesterday I took a sample and today I brought it to Howard County Recreation and Parks HQ. They emailed me back not long later identifying it for me as the Indian Pipe. It’s also called the Corpse Plant. lol. Of course I would find the Corpse Plant, me, the fan of paranormal and especially vampire themed books. One of the pictures above is one I actually took the day I found it. My mom actually mistook it for thrown away crab meat at first. lol. It does kind of look like it from afar.
