Ah what the heck. some of my other photos won't load. I lost my pics from my '04 trip. Those had lots of flora fauna. Anyway a bald eagle on lake four. The eagle took off seconds later you could hear the wings flap it was magical.

That has to be the coolest looking fungi I've seen in ages.

It wasn't even on a blacklight poster.

Thanks!

Ever see a "cow slip" under a fence. Enclosed photo of it's other name "marsh marigold."

It's an early bloomer, mid to late May. I haven't tried them, but Sparky Stensaas recommends cooking up marsh marigold greens, boiling them for 20 to 30 minutes with two to three water changes, to go along with your walleye fillets; but cautions not to eat them raw due to natural acrid poison. M. Stensaas, p. 81, Canoe Country Flora, 1996

3 eagles and a crow. There is a 3rd eagle on the shoreline, lower left side of the picture. They were all fighting over something on the shoreline so I kept a good distance away.

Mushrooms at our campsite along the Isabella River 2006

I'm not sure how long these mushrooms had been growing on the tree, but within a half hour of taking the picture a couple squirrels ran up and down the tree and there was nothing left of them. Perhaps I should have taken a before and after picture!

loonytune, thanks for the info. I was amazed with the raven as it seemed to be rather confident that it could beat out the eagles for the food, which in the end did not happen but it put up a good fight.

It's usually the eagles stealing food from other birds. They will gladly take a catch from an osprey. I think that was why Ben Franklin didn't want to have the eagle representing our country as a national symbol and preferred the wild turkey instead.

Mr. Franklin called the bald eagle a bird "of bad moral character (that) does not get his living honestly." Sounds like some of our politicians. LOL!

Here is a picture of a wolf spider at our campsite on Malberg. This was taken last June. After taking this picture we watched this monster stalk some bugs, it was really cool to watch this arachnid go to work.
