With all the mayhem around here at Christmas, I never got a chance to tell anyone about the really cool stuff I got…
Trail cameras had been on my list for a while now. I’m fascinated by the wildlife that roams our property, and I know I only get a tiny little glimpse of the show they put on from my vantage point, so setting up a few automatic cameras (like hunters use) is a good way to learn more.
These today are the first batch from the camera in the back field.
There are lots of these guys (girls, really):
And this character puts in appearances:
Sometimes, there’s a shot that will take your breath away:
This is Big Boy, the Alpha Male of our little coyote pack. His coat and his size seem to indicate that he’s not all coyote…or not from around here. All the others have that German Shepherd coloring, and are much smaller.
Come back and pose for me again, wouldja?
(With any luck, and more than a little organization on my part, Wildlife Wednesday will become a semi-regular feature around here…let me know what you think.)
