Default Hike At Bakers Meadow

Baker's Meadow, really a pond was dammed in the 1920's when Muskrat fur was in fashion.

Over 145 species of birds as well as muskrat and Beaver have been observed there.


The following shots were taken during a hike I took in mid September. The juvenile Red Tail Hawk (about 60 to 80 feet away) was taken with the K-7 and Tokina 80-400mm with Tamron 1.4 TC hand held. The mushroom was with the Vivitar Series 1, 105mm macro.
I don't know the mushroom species but in the close up macro they look like toasted marshmallows.

Great color, sharpness & detail on the hawk, as well as excellent composition. Not sure of the mushroom species, but they sure are well-photographed!

Rodney and Patty, thanks.

That mushroom was like no other I have ever seen. I couldn't help not getting an up close shot, glad you enjoyed it.
