I usually have my camera repairs done in Lindstrom, Minnesota. Every time we make the trip we drive past a sculpture park but never bothered to stop. On last falls trip we delivered the camera to the shop and then drove over to the Franconia Sculpture Park to look around. As Bernie Sanders would say the place is huge. My wife and I walked around for several hours taking photos of the art work.

More photos from the Park can be found on my website.

In the late fall the Wild Turkeys start to gather together. These were part of a flock of about a dozen that turned up at my bird feeder.

 

Early season frost on the Red Cedar Trail.

 

We had almost two weeks where we had frost on the trees. The frost lasted for the entire day which is a bit unusual.

In the fall there are a large number of Rough-legged Hawks that pass through Crex Meadows.

 

Last fall I embarked on a project to gather milkweed seed pods. In past years I had milkweed growing in my prairie but it seemed to have died out. So, I started gathering seeds for fall planting. While I was opening up the pods I decided to try some experimental photography of the seeds.
