I always take pictures when I see them - I found pink ones a looong time ago :)

Wow. I've never seen any like that, and they're freaky-wonderful! Where did you find them?

So they're actually flowers? That's crazy! I'm glad to read I'm not the only one who thinks they're fungus, though.

I found these in a little park across the street from my day job, where I often sit and read on my breaks. It's actually quite a magical place. There are rats (which I'm quite fond of, although no one else seems to see their beauty), wild blackberries, all manner of crazy mushrooms, hummingbirds, and once a spider that wove a web on my skirt (I think I took a longer break than I was supposed to that day).

They work like Ghost Orchids and are a parasite off tree roots. They look quite alike as well (they are in the same genus as the Eurasian Gohst Orchid). Pretty cool what nature can come up with!
