The game camera, to paraphrase Forrest Gump, is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you're gonna get. Sometimes little or nothing is captured, but sometimes we reap a bonanza of great images. Yesterday was the bonanza.
We moved the camera last week to a different critter trail, also in the open space area near our house. The trail leads from a clearing in the brush under a large spreading oak down to a small creek. It looked well used, but when we checked the SD card after 3 days we had no critter pictures to show for the time. We left it there another 3 to 4 days, and look what we found! The first photo shows a pair of spotted fawns. Both look healthy and alert, evidence that the local herd is thriving nicely. This is, of course, good news for the local nature lovers, but bad news for the local gardeners.
