Fish Hawk Trail at Lake Bemidji State Park

It’s Saturday (June 18th) afternoon, the rain has stopped, and it’s time to get out of the house. While I’ve done the bog walk a number of times already this year at Lake Bemidji State Park, today I decided to check out the Fish Hawk Trail. The Fish Hawk Trail ends in a short boardwalk leading to an overlook of the Sundew Pond. A new area, a couple weeks later in the season, and lo and behold, nature has displayed a whole new array of things to view. I feel so lucky have this park in my neighborhood.

  1. Very nice images Carol. I especially like the butterfly and calla lily. The water in the calla lily shot is really nice. Can you share any tips on how you shot these? Tripod? Shutter speed? Thanks for sharing.

    • Both of these were shot with my Cannon 50 mm 1.4 lens, AV mode, no tripod. Butterfly – f/3.2, 1/80 sec. Calla Lily – f/5.6 1/25 sec. The water in the calla lily shot was not planned. I think the wind blowing the plant caused the circular reflection effect. I’m liking what this lens does in close-up situations such as this one. I haven’t had it very long, however, so am still in the “experimental” stage with it.

  2. Wonderful photos, Carol! Your photography is really amazing! I love the pitcher plant photo the best of these! How special that you are able to appreciate the State Park so often!
