Mushrooms

As a little girl growing up in an Polish immigrant family, we would go mushroom picking in the Canadian forests. I do not know what kind of mushrooms these are in the photograph that I took as I was hiking in the woods of British Columbia. There are a lot of very good medicinal mushrooms like Reishi, Shitake, Cordyceps, and Maitake to name but a few.

Hawk on Post

Mikawoz Hawk on Post

Hawk on Post

Whether you are going north, south, east or west in the prairies, you will see an hawk on a post of a farmer’s field. It is actually a hard picture to get because as you slow down in your car, the hawk takes off.

Interesting information from Wikipedia include, “Hawks, like most birds, are tetrachromats having four types of colour receptors in the eye. These give hawks the ability to perceive not only the visible range but also ultraviolet light. Other adaptations allow for the detection of polarized light or magnetic fields.”
