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

June 26, 2018

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 this is a stick insect.

Also here’s a banana spider I ran into. He’s fine.
