Trail Cam Critters

I sorted through around 2,000 trail cam photos just for you.  My blog followers.  Actually, it was kind of fun.  When you quickly flow through all those photos it becomes like a movie.  The deer's ears twitch, their eating and frolicking comes to life and then they suddenly disappear from the frame.  Just like magic.  Well, I picked out an assortment of night critters, day trippers and anything unusual.  Like this deer kiss.  How sweet.

For those of you uninitiated with our trail cam, it is a camera that snaps a photo when it detects motion out in our woods.  So far no yetis.  

A great coyote capture.

Turkeys galore.

A flashy close-up.

A fisher cat!  This is an amazing capture.

Take a gander at another turkey.

A monster deer.  But not in size.  If you look close his head looks right out of an alien movie.

Inspecting the junk.

Fight club

Flight club plus ref.

One horn at night

One horn during the day.  He looks pretty beat up.

A raccoon in headlights.

Buck beauty shot.

I wonder if she's saying, "No more photos for God's sake" 

A blurry Bobcat.  It is not a good shot.  But it is still pretty cool to capture one roaming around.

The snow looks like shafts of light cutting through the night.

A post snow frolic.

A snowy dinner party.

I hope you enjoyed our nature photos.  It is fun to catch animals unaware.  And you never know watch you'll catch.  Big foot?  He's on our bucket list.

Wow! That's an amazing variety of critters in your camera view. I sure do feel for that beat up One Antler. And thanks for the sweet kiss. :-)


The turkeys in the wild I've only seen once here in Texas and that was on a ranch! LOL

Loved all your assorted creatures of nature...especially the deer.

I imagine the first time you saw what your trail-cam revealed was quite a treat; very interesting to keep track of the wildlife out there at night

Christian Weiß said...

Beautiful photos :)

Linda Hensley said...

Thank you for looking through so many photos for us. I think it was worth it because you found so many extra special animals. You must have the camera in the right spot. Very cool, and makes me jealous since I'm not living in the woods any more. Beautiful!

Maggid said...

THIS is the absolute coolest. You have a camera to show you visitors? AND - what amazing visitors you have . . Thank you for taking time to share with us.

OMGosh . . . Awesome Sauce!

Hilary said...

Wow.. you managed some amazing captures. What a kick it must be to look them over and see what's there. Very cool.

Pat Tillett said...

What a variety of animals. I love this. What a good idea.
I kind of felt sorry for the deer with one horn. I'm not surprised that he looks beat up.

Stewart M said...

Great set of pictures - I think most of would be surprised by what wanders about near our homes at night - although I'm sure most of the things in my garden would be possums!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Who needs TV?
Great images of your critters.

Nancy Grönholm said...

What a great idea! Not that I'd recognise most of those animals ... I might've guessed the deer but other than that I saw only birds and... smaller animals ;)
True what previous commenter said - no need for TV here! :D
