Based on interesting tracks and scat, we’ve been speculating for a while about which critters tromp through our yard when we’re not there to see them. E finally decided to buy herself the present of a trail cam so we could find out. We put it up about a week ago, mounted near the back door.
Out of 270 pictures collected over the last week, 250 are of moving leaves. 17 are of a flapping plastic bag (now better secured) that was part of how we mounted the camera. 2 were of me and the cat in the yard. And 1 picture is of an actual genuine critter crossing the yard at 3:00 in the morning! Maybe not the greatest photographic quality, but still very exciting.
