With all the water in the grass now, I have a feeling your trailcam is going to be working overtime snapping pictures of giant mosquitoes.

I’ve got millions of them already.
Now I just have to wait until they get to be a good eating size.

Only a few mosquitoes so far but I'm guessing this little string of warm weather will change that soon.  The nights have all been fairly cool yet. 

Lots of ticks so far this year though.

Yesterday it was deer on the trailcam. 

One got a 'flash in the face'... 

looks like it was being a curios george and had it's face right up to the camera when the camera flashed!

11:15 yesterday morning a very brave coyote marched past the trailcam. 

I was out mowing at the time so I haven't figured out exactly where he was coming from. 

I was walking the dog the day before and he pounced on a woodchuck...

end of woodchuck!!!

He carried it home and was very proud of it.  He took it right to the back door and would have carried it inside if I would have let him. 

I made him leave it on the ground and I let him inside then I hauled it out and tossed on the pile for the vultures. 

When the dog came back outside later he looked around for probably a good 20 minutes for his 'kill'.

I went out early and got the SD card out of the trailcam this morning and there wasn't a critter on it except the dog about 30 seconds before I got there!  It was a nice day all day so hopefully it was busy back there too. 

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that the mosquitoes still hadn't been too bad back there...

well that has changed completely now. 

There are lots of them and they are big and they are hungry!

I'm wondering if some of my 'false triggers' are just the huge mosquitoes flying past the motion sensor?

WooHoo!!!

I finally found another photo hosting site that would work with MonroeTalks!

We've seen this gal several times in the last few weeks.  I've got a hunch the coyote is stalking her although I've never gotten a picture of them both on the same day. 

I'll go upload some more now so I can link them to here.

Shutterfly.com is the website.

Early this morning a coyote was heading north!



Yesterday, a couple of toms out strutting their stuff!

A very brave 'daylight' coyote!  Just out of the photo about 15 yards is my deer blind.  I'm pretty sure it would work for a coyote blind too!

The hen turkey out and about!



I think I'm getting a pretty good idea of where this guy is living!

A couple of ghost deer.  The first time I checked the card I went right past this one and thought the camera had just tripped on one of those giant skeeters!  When I went back through I go backwards and go fast and then my wife and I both saw the deer at the same time.  If you have trouble seeing it then try to zoom in right to the middle of the photo.  It's standing there having breakfast.  We wondered if it was back in there looking for morels.  Does anyone know if deer eat them?  You can see how easy it is to miss seeing a deer.  Just think if that was all fall colors back in there.



By 5:59 it's getting daylight out but the camera decided to use the infrared flash and go for a black and white photo.

Deer are naturally curious critters and it looks like this one has figured out that this camera really doesn't belong here!



I saw this very distinctive looking cat 2 years ago during deer season.  I watched it stalk a squirrel for the longest time out in front of the blind.  The squirrel finally figured out the cat was there and ran up the tree and scolded the cat.  We've seen the cat on and off occasionally since then.  There's a black one that stays around more and I think the two of them may get territorial at times.  We've seen this one over half a mile from here too.  I've often wondered what the 'range' of a typical house cat is.

For some reason when I saw this picture I started thinking about Thanksgiving dinner!!!

Have you ever wondered if an infra-red light will make a coyote's eyes glow?

The answer is obviously a yes!!!



A nice little fox that we see from time to time.

This is not a giant deer.  I had been experimenting with moving the camera closer to the ground trying to cut back on the false triggers.  One day about then I had about 90 in one day. 

Just browsing along!



Looks like the parade grand marshal.



More of the parade!!!
