Well, this is one way to tell the temperature are getting chilly at night. And that I need to change the batteries in the newer trail cam. Until the camera warms up enough, it starts recording things in pink! Also, during night shots, the infrared flash stops working and the files have a red law … Continue reading In the pink!
Today is supposed to be hot again, so I wanted to make sure to get the garden watered early in the day, while it was still cool. I started with the soaker hose at the squash tunnel, then went around checking the melons, squash and gourds. I was extremely disappointed to find this. Our one … Continue reading Our 2021 garden; NOOooo!!! *sob*
My morning rounds were shorter today. I did not water all the garden beds this time. I've been keeping a close eye on the weather radar, and we might actually get rain! Yesterday evening, I grated a whole lot of soap to scatter around in the old kitchen garden. It either worked, or we didn't … Continue reading On the menu, and passing through.
Part of my morning rounds has been to check the garden beds for deer (or other critter) damage. Since we lost several Mongolian Giant sunflower transplants, there has not appeared to be any more damage in that area. In the main garden beds, there has been little more than a few spinach that the row … Continue reading Captured!
Setting the trail cam on the saw horse did work; several files were captured. First, the good news. Nothing was eating the tulips last night. The camera did catch a few critters, though. I took some screen caps from the videos. There was only one night time file, and it looks like the first definitive … Continue reading Tulip cam’s first pictures
Well, I'm certainly glad I decided to switch memory cards on the trail cam over the tulips after I finished my last post. With this camera, if it happens to be recording when I pull out the memory card, I have to manually turn it back on again after putting in the new card. This … Continue reading Testing, testing!
This morning, I walked into the living room and found seven deer outside our window! That is the most we've seen, all at once, since our first spring here. 🙂 Then I spotted them on the trail cams! I never saw all seven on the trail cams at once. They kept streaming across the road … Continue reading What a crowd!
I found quite a surprise at our gate when I checked the trail cam files! Four deer, hanging out on the driveway and road! They stayed there long enough that I found about a dozen files (stills and video) of them! Looking at the time stamps, they came to the driveway after visiting the house. … Continue reading It’s crowded out there!
The deer are out in full force! We're actually seeing a lot more than usual, for this time of year. Particularly at our main gate. With how dry this winter had been, I suspect they are hunting for water sources. These ones were caught on the trail cam a couple of evenings ago. Can you … Continue reading So many deer!
Found in this morning's trail cam images. There were three deer in the group. The first two slipped through the fence, in between the wires. The third one decided to take a flying leap!
