It Goes Bump in the Night

For those of us who have trail cameras out, you can probably site different occasions when you see things that you can't identify right off hand.

I keep having a few of those experiences.

You might assign this image with the title of "Bat" or "Bird"...Maybe it's a HUGE bug? In any event this was the only picture of the "unknown" captured in the series  when the camera was triggered.

There seems to a nebulous aura where I would assume a wing would be a flutter. 

This image is like none other I have seen since having the camera, getting close to a year now.

Could it be an out of focus deer face? Once again it was the only picture in a series. A fast mover!

Usually I can tell if it is a deer getting up close. You would see the glare of an eye or an ear hair or two, and most definitely a nose or tongue,but this is  a mystery.

 I like keeping the camera low to get interactions such as the one you are witnessing in these pictures.

Some days you have to wonder if they line up to take turns on getting a lick in?

Then there are the days when they look like they are posing for group pictures to keep for posterity's sake.Silly Deer! or is that Deerses?

Not only the good has been noted - some health issues have become evident within the herd as well.

Creature in a hurry! See those streaks in the flash?

I am beginning to wonder if the coyotes, or raccoons, are taking a minute in their nightly trips around the timber in search of food to check out that  blinking red eyed box.

Mysteries are fun, but not knowing makes me yearn to see more.

Until the next post, CDGardens here at Timber Life signing out. Have a Great day!!!

It's always fun to see what shows up on the trailcam pictures. Of course, we could upgrade to a more expensive model that might actually capture those "fast movers", but that would take away half the fun, wouldn't it?

SimplyOutdoors - It is most definitely one of the highlights of my day when I check the trailcam pictures. I think no matter what trailcam you have as long as it catches wildlife it is fun!

It's neat to wonder what the pics could be!

Looks like you have a spook or two in your Timber! Those are eerie pix CDGardens. Glad you have it to see the deer and catch a ghost while you are at it! :) Makes it interesting! :)

CDGardens said...

Casey - I love the mystery...

Marian Love Phillips - There is some folklore that this property has a lady ghost. Apparently,I haven't been in the right place at the right time to catch her wandering since I haven't seen her.
I am most definitely finding the pix of interest. :o)

The top one is shaped like a running rabbit to my mind.

Gorges Smythe - Thanks for the input...I haven't seen it since that day so the culprit remains a mystery.
