Seen @ Kyburz cell parking site
Really interesting flower-mimicking fungus!
Parasitic on Boechera sp.
They're everywhere this year!
Two life stages here: the gametophyte and the sterile horsetail sprouts!
Strangely, growing in a fen. Usually you don't see that here.
WTH! Not even sure about the Phylum on this oddball...
It is difficult to see, but the pelvis is part of the remains of this skunk and the scent on my dog who found this in the brush verifies.
