Test photo from Photo Bucket.



Picture taken last winter in Florida.


Looks like you figured it out just fine!

Where in Florida was this?

I haven't had anything on the trailcam for a few days now. 

I've been back in that area mowing quite a bit so maybe I've scared off the deer that had been hanging around.

Osprey photo was taken at our RV park in Punta Gorda. 
Couple guys were running RC boats and I was waiting for the Osprey to pick up a boat,
 but then he went after the fish.



I would rather have a picture of him flying off with the boat.

I remembered that you were at PG so I was wondering if the water was the Peace River or the Myakka River. 

Yes, a picture 'grabbing' the boat would be hilarious.  That's still a neat picture you have.

I haven't had a thing on the trailcam now for several days.  I've been mowing right down through there so maybe I have the deer chased off.  Something will show up eventually.

The dog did jump another woodchuck yesterday.  That would be a neat video but I never know when he's going to 'spring'!

Still no deer or turkeys or coyotes or foxes or cougars on the trailcam yesterday although there was a squirrel and a woodchuck!

The great woodchuck hunter was right there 'hunting' too!   He didn't end up catching it last night but one of us will get it one of these days.

Looks like Woody was in a hurry to get somewhere!



It's always neat to watch any dog working a scent.  I could tell the dog was onto something but I wasn't sure what it was.  The pictures solved that question though.

I've stayed out of the woods with the tractor and mower for a few days and we're starting to get some traffic back!

We hadn't seen a turkey for a couple of weeks after seeing several.  I'd like to be able to track some of them to see what kind of a pattern they move in.  This one looks like it's in a hurry to get to wherever it's going!



We've been watching a few deer across the road at the back of a field that was just planted.  There's a county drain right there so the deer can probably still get a drink whenever they want one.  Looks like this one finally ventured back into our woods.

Looks like Rocky was only a few minutes behind the deer. 



And here's Rocky heading back the other way!

For as many squirrels as we have around here I can't believe we don't get more pictures.  I do think a lot of the pictures I get with nothing in them may be from squirrels scurrying through before the camera triggers.

This guy was actually standing up and posing real pretty!



And then one deer in the night.  Have to wonder if this is the one with the fawn but this is the only picture I got.  I think it was close enough to the camera it heard the camera go off and it turned around and went back.



While I was out mowing yesterday I had taken the dog out with me.  Usually he plays around a little and then goes and asks for my wife to let him inside.  Apparently he took off on a jaunt because he was pretty tired when he finally came back to the house.  He drank until his water bowl was empty and even after I filled it again he drank a lot more.  Maybe I'll see him on the trail camera when I go get the card later!

Just as I suspected!  When I got the camera card the first picture on it was this one.  This is while I was mowing and he decided to go 'hunting' on his own.  He is panting pretty hard already!



The only 'wildlife' on the camera was this darned squirrel again (several photos but this one was the best).  Looks like it took a lot of effort and made sure it was 'center stage'!



When we walked back to get the card yesterday the dog saw something and took off just before we got to the camera.  The camera was quick enough to catch the dog as he ran by though.

Still at least one deer hanging around the camera.



And Rocky made a showing too!



This deer sure does have something for that camera!



The dog thought something had been there but whatever it might have been didn't show up on the camera.

We only had one picture on the trailcam but it was another good one!

When deer are little they're all legs and those legs are gangly!!!

The deer are still hanging around!



Looks like the fawn is trying to get going.  There's a fire break lane about 25 yards out in front of the camera and I was mowing on it about that time.  Maybe I scared them out!

I didn't grab my camera to take a pic, but was looking East down the river towards the dam and saw two deer on the South side foraging around the shoreline.  It was getting near evening so with the Sun low in the horizon it just lit up their brown/golden color behind the backdrop of green.
