I did take some time to get out to the field sites we're assessing for class, and check on all of our cameras and long-term experiments, so they didn't go without attention for two weeks.
The cameras had been busily snapping photos.
(however, I should warn anyone who clicked on this post hoping for well-bronzed skin, swimming trunks and bikinis....you're likely to be disappointed)
Deer, Raccoon, Eastern Cottontail, Eastern Gray Squirrel all generated many photos.
But the week, again, belonged to The Tod.
Once more, we caught pictures of him/her on nearly all of our cameras.....
We also got a great series of pics of him/her hunting the grass for something (a rodent, I'm assuming).
The critter can first be seen in the back ground (look for the eyes in the grass)....searching for something that draws him progressively closer to the cam.
....that wonderful tail......
The 10 second interval between triggers brings him right up into view......
Always have eyes in the back of your head!
....but also try not to get distracted from the task at-hand!
The semester is rapidly drawing to a close! But there is still more to come before we pull the cameras and shut this project down for the semester.....
