Well, it’s the dawn of a new week, and the end of my vacation. I’ve been ‘off grid’ for the past week, camping in the beautiful, Bon Echo Provincial Park. While I was out having a great time with family and friends, my trail cams were hard at work, picking up some of the curious denizens of my ‘back forty’.
There’s more videos than shown here, but these are what I believe, to be some of the best.
Caleb just wants to say “Hello”, to the newest tree dweller and perhaps invite it to dinner. Notice how he sniffs around for just the right herbs to go with his guest. Hmmm . . . the entire woods seems to be out of rosemary.
Failing to find any spices to go with the tree hugging, one-eyed ‘thing-a-ma-jiggy’,Caleb decides to head to the creek for a round with the boys.
Having just read George Orwell’s, 1984, Betty decides to cover the camera. She soon realizes that opposable thumbs are an asset and gives up.
Shunning the paranoia of “Bookworm Betty”, Fabiana takes the spotlight for her chance at fame.
Less than pleased that her debut vid has acquired only one like (her mom), Fabiana decides to upgrade the SEO’s of her site. Again, those opposable thumbs . 😦
Here to greet us, is Miss Cervidae, 2021! She’s trying to teach her younger sister, (see uninterested sister in the background) how one goes about showing off her best features, before closing in for the “money shot”!
You might want some company for this one! The most adorable phantom you’ll ever see.
“Mmmmmm! What’s that smell? Apples? Do I smell apples? Hmmm . . . doesn’t look like one. Could be genetically modified, better give it a pass.”
My absolute fav! Do this: concentrate on the bottom left (your left) hand corner and play it on regular speed. See anything? Now, take your cursor and slow down the video, keeping your eye on the same spot. Don’t blink, or you’ll miss it!
Okay, the last video didn’t translate well to YouTube, if you couldn’t see the creature, scroll down for a snapshot.
Bugger moves lightening quick! It shows up like this on my trail cam video.
We’ve lived on our beautiful country lot since 2004, and in all those years have been treated to an abundance of wildlife. In my yard, I’ve seen bears, wolves, coyotes, even a bull moose (highly unusual since we’re too far south for most). Our property is around ten acres, with forest and field on just about every side, so I mentioned to my wife about setting up a trail cam in our backwoods, to see what it would capture.
Well, the wonderful woman went out and bought me two! I set them to ‘video’ and set them up. It didn’t take long for me to get some spectacular clips of our local wildlife, and I wanted to share them with you.
First up, we have Mr. Wile E Coyote. He was most curious and wary of the strange one eyed creature in the tree.
Randolph was another mystified denizen of the local flora.
Here, we can see that Randolph is contemplating the possible truth behind Orwell’s 1987!
Has the Loch Ness Monster become a land dwelling beast?
