My camera dragged me to The Arboretum yesterday(http://www.arboretum.umn.edu/).
A beautiful day for taking pictures,
walking around listening to the snow crunch
under my Uggs, and being so aware of the quiet that
you can listen to it.
I spend so much time in an office building that I forget how much I miss being outside, stepping in the mud, and hearing the sounds that remind me that
there are birds in the world.

|I was really amazed by the detail in this photo. I have a good camera (Nikon D70S) but I was impressed by the detail.|
|This woodpecker was making the biggest racket!|
|The angle on this bush reminds me of a peacock.|
|I was obsessed with this beautiful red barn in the middle of the frozen trees. Took several pictures of it.|
|My barn. I think I like this photo the best.|
|I love to take pictures of repeating elements, especially in nature.|
|View from Rose Garden. Love the frosting on the trees!|
|Not sure what these are. Just thought they were cool.|
|Frosted maple leaves.|
|This fat little bird made me wait and wait to get a picture. I didn't know I had that much patience.|
|The lone baby pinecone in the snow.|
|This incredible structure was woven together in the front of the main bulding.|
