Wonderfully pre-historic, aren't they? We can't really call this a flower, more like the fruiting body of a fungus in many ways. This is a non-photosynthetic stem bearing the spores of this ancient plant. Found, for those interested, whilst wandering around Walthamstow marshes behind the Lee Valley Ice Rink. Canon EOS 5D
