Wonders

May we remember that Life here on Earth is richer with possibility than we may understand like a tree growing out of a rock or a butterfly in snow or a being resting quietly in the woods nearby. Wondrousness is all around.    

Trail cameras March 2018

Very little activity to share during the month of March. I moved the location of the “cave-cam” to a more open area still near the flow of water. (See the last two shots in the slideshow.) Years ago we saw a mountain lion cache the body of a deer in this clearing. Note the deer…

Trail camera highlights Dec 2017- Feb 2018

This one takes my breath away. (See more in slideshow below.) This slideshow features shots from December of 2017 to February 2018. There’s been less wildlife activity in general – possibly due to the weather and also heavy home construction activity very nearby. Still, so glad to see the action that’s there! Coyotes make first…

Trail camera photos 11/18 – 11/25

One and only one bobcat photo this week. The quiet setting back there was destroyed by the complete demolition of a house nearby. Lots of raccoon action, one skunk, a mouse, and birds also make appearances though I did not include them all in this week’s slideshow. Most interesting is a new hole that cannot…

Trail camera photos 11/4 – 11/11

Don’t the bobcats look lovely in the snow?! The raccoons we have seen tend to travel together, one after the other, while we have only seen one skunk at a time. This week for the first time one of our cameras has caught raccoons doing more than just traveling through. We can see interaction between…

Trail camera photos 10/28 – 11/4

Perhaps the continued landscaping activity nearby as well as increased cold and wind resulted in fewer wildlife photos this time around. Our most common species appear this week including various birds, a pair of raccoon, one skunk and solitary bobcat. Another note: Rabbit were a common site for a while. The last rabbit photo was…

Trail camera photos 10/21 – 10/28

Two weeks went by without any bobcat photos from either camera. There were skunk and raccoon photos but less other wildlife activity probably due to increased human presence (power repair, cable repair and heavy landscaping nearby). Bobcats returned! In the latest bobcat photos it’s hard to tell which are kittens and which are adults. Please…

Introducing Cave-Cam

Trail camera photos 10/1 – 10/7 Woohoo! A second trail camera was added to backyard wilderness. I’m calling it the Cave-Cam because it is pointed toward the entrance of what appears to be a small cave below the clearing where the first camera is situated. I will now call the first camera the Clearing-Cam. The…
