Weekend Hike: Wild Baby Rabbits, Bugs, and Mysterious Mushrooms

I took a VERY humid day hike on the third weekend of June and there was a lot of cool stuff in the forest this day.

I was walking through some brush where there’s usually rabbits dashing out, and I noticed a little tiny rabbit face. I could tell it was a baby and couldn’t really run away. I decided to ease up to him and pet him a bit before picking him up. Can you spot the little hopper?

When I was done with my rabbit photoshoot, I put him back in his nest and let him relax. Godspeed to you little buddy!

Next I found a few more colonies of Chanterelle mushrooms. Delicious! Here’s my yield for the day from about 5 separate Chanterelle colonies:

Next, I found some scary looking mushrooms. I took photos so I could post them to mushroom ID forums.

Then I found another colony of choice edibles, this time Meadow Mushrooms.

Then I got bored and kicked a tree and some bugs fell out. I think they were stick insects. Lost the photo tho.

Also here’s a some banana spiders I ran into. I think these are photos from the same day…

My name is Hunter and Iโ€™m just a cajun boy with a lot of respect and admiration for the natural world. I like to capture itโ€™s beauty in photos and preserve what I can so it can be celebrated in the home. I love animals, people, gaming, music, movies, hammocking, hiking, and photography.
