Pinedrops (Pterospora andromedea), also known as "coyote's arrows" to some native American tribes are parasitic plants that feed on the roots of pine trees and other conifers where they are found where the soil is rich. These pinedrops were photographed about one-third up the southern face of Washington's Mount Rainier.
