I have several cameras all over my property. The cameras serve different purposes. For instance, some capture everyone that comes up my driveway. If someone comes snooping, I’ll get their license plate or maybe their face on camera.
I have a camera set up to keep an eye on the chicken coop. If predators come snooping around, I’ll see that they are there as well as what they are. Then I can take steps to remedy that if need be.
Then I have cameras that are out on the property to just see what is out there.
Every couple of days I’ll go on a walk and collect the cards out of them and see what all got captured. It’s kind of fun seeing all of the random things that get caught, and I thought just for the heck of it, that I would share some of them with you.
First, when you are just going about life and completely forget there are camera around.
Jack gets caught goofing around.
All sorts of stages of work gets caught on camera.
I think a bird must have set it off this time, but you can see the fence in progress on one particular day.
Giving the chickens frozen jugs to keep them cool in the summer heat.
And lots of mowing.
Burning yard debris.
The UPS guy leaving a package at the gate, because I forgot to leave it open.
Then of course you capture this crazy lady in her pajamas and boots. I had heard something out in the pasture when I was closing the chicken coop….
You capture chickens.
The other day a chicken found a frog. She took off running with her prize, and the other chickens took off after her, trying to get it!
And of course you also capture wild things on camera. Things like lots and lots of bunnies.
A stray cat.
I went back and looked at the date these photos were taken, and they were the very week that Duke had his horrible, horrible incident. (You can see the vlog about it here. And if you need to know how to de-skunk a dog…find that here.)
That blur is an armadillo.
And then there are these. You can easily see the coyote there on the left, but if you look closely, you will also see another “blob” in the center. That was a second coyote with it.
So far I haven’t caught any deer or other creatures on the cameras, but I have recently moved a couple to new locations. We’ll see what we get!
