Lost Lake Trail, Muskegon SP, birds plus Pt II
To escape the heat and humidity on Sunday, I went to Muskegon State Park and hiked the Lost Lake trail. I shot some of the best photos of my life today, and some that may not be spectacular, but are interesting enough to post. I took 341 photos today, whittled that number down to 130, as many of the photos were of the same subject, but shot with different settings.
For this third post from that day, I am going to post an assortment of birds and a few other things I saw, to go along with the post that I have already done with the flower photos that I took that day. Not all the photos are great ones, but I think that they show the variety of things there to be seen.
For the first post of the birds and other things that I saw, go here.
These were taken in the Snug Harbor portion of Muskegon State Park in the evening as I was getting ready to leave. That is the where the boat launch and day use area (picnic area) are, along with the parking lot and the trailhead for several of the trails that wind through the park are located.
All the picnickers had left for the day, and the wildlife came out to play.
All these were shot with my Sigma 150-500 mm lens, and in a rare thing for me, the lens wasn’t zoomed to 500 mm for many of these shots, even fewer were cropped at all. By the time I shot these, a peaceful, serene feeling had come over me, and I wanted to convey that, and a sense of the setting in my photos. It was special to walk along, and see the wildlife behaving completely natural, as if neither I, or any one else, were within miles of the place. Watching a doe appear out of the reeds to feed in the waters of Muskegon Lake pretty much sums it up.
That’s it for this one, thanks for stopping by!
