Came across this plant in a lake in North Texas.
Anyone know what it is?

It's obviously very red.  At first I thought it might
be a root, but I don't think do, because this red stem
has its own roots.

Kind of cool looking don't you think?  Almost like it
belongs in salt water.



It really is a root. Roots can have side branches. It is probably from some nearby bush or tree which is a species adapted to having its roots in the water, possibly a willow.
