Trail camera photos 9/9 – 9/16

After a week of having the camera poorly oriented (oops!), for some reason we captured a much quieter span this week: lots of towhee activity, a raccoon, a skunk and a rabbit. Stay tuned though, today (9/18) I saw a bobcat down there taking a bath. That means barring camera failure, the next download should…

Trail camera photos 8/26 – 9/2

Enjoy the view:   Here’s a chronology of the photos…

Early trail camera photos

When I first started setting this trail camera out, I got lots of shots of leaves and their shadows blowing in the wind. Gradually I learned about…

Earth our Mother

Earth Is Our Example There is a flame we each must tend. Fan the fire too heavily and its brightness will blind us. Neglect the flame, and it will smolder and smoke. Kindled gently and regularly, a path is illuminated. Earth demonstrates balance of light turning back from the brightness on the summer solstice and beginning…
