MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

Very rare white flower ! Nicely done !

3 Sep 2010 12:36pm

@MARIANA: Thanks Mariana. It's a parasitic flower called Monotropa uniflora or Indian pipe in English or Monotrope uniflore in French. It grows in the shade in rich forest soil.

Jamais vu cela avant, habitées par des Aliens ? Superbes, les teintes et l'impression d'étrangeté.
