What's New On The Trail Camera

These are the days between seasons where I don't have a lot to write about.  I like to take these quiet days to post some pictures and use some of the photos that no one ever sees.  I didn't take today's photos, they were taken on the trail camera.  We haven't seen any big angry bear or wolves, thank goodness.  We have had hundreds of pictures of racoons, possums, deer, crows, squirrels and rabbits.

I delete most of the trail camera pictures because we can get 150 pictures in one day.  These next photos were from yesterday.  They are of a doe with her twins.  I have been watching the twins since they were young fawns.  Now they are almost as big as their mom.

Here they are eating some shelled corn I put out for them.

One of them is eating on a pumpkin.  They like the Halloween pumpkins .

Even though the twins are bigger and on solid food, I guess they need a little mama's milk to wash it all down.

I haven't seen our buck with the deformed antler for a while.  I showed photos of him in the following blog.   http://www.thecabincountess.com/2014/09/update-on-whooping-cranes-deer-and.html
This other buck comes around almost everyday.  Hunting season is almost here.  If these deer could read, I would post Safe House signs on all the trees in our woods.  I featured this buck on one of my Facebook cover photos.  I think he is young, and I hope he is smart enough to dodge the hunters.




The deer and raccoon get along fine.

Then the crows as big as chickens come and eat anything that is left over.  With their Caw, Caw, Caw, they invite their friends over too.  They always know when food is available.

I look forward to checking the camera every day or two to see who has been in the neighborhood overnight.
