I had forgot about Pine sap, yes, that makes sense, it does tend to bloom a ahead of indian pipes.

Also thanks for the advice on the camera. I have discovered better techniques and since last year when I took this one.

Hypopitys sp.

Although the plant on the picture is blurred and one can not be sure, this doesn’t seem to me Corallorhiza sp. but Hypopithys sp. (most probably H. monotropa – see for example observation 73007). Corallorhiza has much slenderer stalk with much less scales (leaves) on it. Their over-mature flowers/fruits do not point upwards as in your picture.
A hint: Don’t use auto-focus on your camera in such conditions. Usually it doesn’t work. It sharpens the background in stead of the object, which you would like to show. Using manual focus is usually the right solution.
