Title: Starkey Hill - Spring 2010
Post by: DaveC on May 25, 2010, 07:23:53 PM
Starkey Hill was one of the first hikes I discovered after moving to Guelph, and will always be one of my favourites.  In my opinion its one of the best places to see Trilliums.

Could one of the field naturalists let me know what type of mushroom this is?  I see it all over the place this time of year, and I love its colours.

I sat here for ten minutes watching the pollen collection.  This one was working her butt off.  Can you see the pollen collecting on the brushes of its legs?

It finally took off on me, so I finished the rest of the circuit.
