INdian pipes
Went looking for mushrooms today, though find identifying them challenging. Indian pipes are not mushrooms, they just seem to belong in that family since they do not have chlorophyll, turn dark, and live off the decayed leaves in the forest.

The second mushroom has little specks on it as if it were decorated pastry.  This one is living in the moss, but is covered with pine needles and rooted in a decayed leaf.

The third one looks like a very nicely made poached egg, and learned it is called an American Caesar.
