Pine Sap (Monotropa hypopitys).  This plant looks similar to Indian Pipe but its flowers are red, pink, lavender, or yellow, and it has several nodding flowers on the same stem.  This plant also feeds off fungi associated with tree roots, usually those of oak or pine trees.  The plant in this picture has gone to seed, and is now standing upright.
