Caught on Camera

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.

I think a bird must have set it off this time, but you can see the fence in progress on one particular day.

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.

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!

  1. Your “bunnies” look more like Jack rabbits next to the rabbits we have here in Kansas! Ours are much smaller. Love your pictures, vlogs, and stories! I’m living vicariously I guess… I love hearing about your chickens… I want some again so much but it just isn’t going to happen again. We live in town and they restrict the amount, plus we have several very large dogs (Shepherds, Belgian Malinois’s, police type dogs) that would think of them as prey since they weren’t raised with them. They would find a way to break into their enclosure. Not enough space in this city sized yard to afford each their own space anyway. :( I guess I’m too old anyway I guess at 74, but I can dream right?

    • I have to be careful with my dogs, too. That is why I built a fence for them in the back yard, instead of them running loose (the dogs.) Chena has been know to “play” with things to death, and both dogs are WAY too interested in the chickens, so better safe than sorry.
