Unusual flower ID

Hi, my friend found this between small lakes on the Ludington canoe trail on Hamlin Lake. Any idea what it is?

No, I am not sure what that is. I am consulting some colleagues to see what we can come up with.

Are there any other photos? It seems like this might be a mutation of a flower or fruit. We are not sure from looking at this photo. Sorry, we can't figure this one out.

My friend said she will have to go back! I thought it looked like a fruit might be forming on the end of the long tuber-y thing, too.
