Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Found growing near Heavenly, California (that is basically Lake Tahoe and is a ski area).

Anyone have a guess??

It is a parasitic plant.

Couldn't go to bed until I found it. :)
