Spring keeps rolling along. In the Upper Peninsula it comes a bit later than it does most other places in the continental US. It really bursts forth around the beginning of June. It’s about a 6 hour drive to get up there, but I was looking forward to spending some quality time in the Hiawatha National Forest. The place is simply beautiful and it is so remote that I see only a few people on the logging roads each day. Unfortunately I didn’t have much luck locating some of the songbirds I was looking for. The wildflowers were abundant and never flew away. These pink Lady’s Slippers were abundant in some forested areas.
I kept trying with the birds, not having much luck. Even if I had not been able to create a single image, it would have been wonderful just being out in the forest. It seems to be that when things get hard, the reliable species who are always there for you show up. Today it was a Pine Warbler which is quickly becoming my most photographed warbler. When all others are shy, I can count on this species to remain curious.
