Pinesap (Monotropa Hypopitys) is a plant without chlorophyll, living off the roots of nearby plants for food.

This was on the Mt Walker Trail, in the Olympic National Forest, just south of Quilcene. It was overcast and in fairly dense woods. I had to push the ISO up to 2000 in order to get a reasonable f/ stop to get the depth of field needed to keep the plant in focus.

  • Lens: Nikkor 58mm
  • ISO 2000 1/60 sec f/7.1
