Bird's Nest Fungus

I was thrilled to pieces to find a Bird's Nest Fungus on my walk today. I had been reading about them and knew what it was right away, even WITHOUT an unhelpful guidebook. I hadn't expected to see one as I don't think they are really in season at this time and I certainly didn't spot another one even though I kept my eyes peeled.
