"Frost Flowers"

Not a game camera photo, but had to take a picture because it's so beautiful and gone so quickly.

I've seen this in the woods for years in the winter and never was able to get a true identification. I stumbled onto a great website ... was given an answer within minutes. Fantastic website for anything you wish to learn about plants and more.
The "Frost Flower" is formed as water is drawn out of cracks in the wood by capillary action and freezes upon contact with the cold air.

Will check the cameras on the mouse trail and otter landing thursday for more updates.

What camera do you use? I want to buy one for photography purpose but I am worried about image quality as most are designed for hunters. Your pictures look good though, day and night. Do you get high resolutions at all? Thanks for any help...
