U.S. 41, across the road from The Baraga State Park, and in front of Keweenaw Bay, Baraga County, July 25, 2006
Notice that there is female Hummingbird feeding on the Fireweed located on the North Trail, Hunter's Point Park, Keweenaw County, July 27, 2006. The DSC-R1 was set manually at 1/100th second and f/16 to increase the depth of field. Those settings required the DSC-R1's flash be used to illuminate the immediate area around the Fireweed.
The first and second images above were photographed near this American Legion Memorial on U.S. 41, near Baraga, Michigan on July 25, 2006. To read the poem, click on the FIREWEED title above the first image to view these images enlarged.
