Critter Watch

The wildlife camera arrived yesterday before noon! Needless to say, I am quite excited.

The camera runs on 12 AA batteries which take at least 10 hours to charge.  The first 8 were in the charger by 1 PM and the last batch were in by 11 PM last night.  The software was installed this morning. 

And, finally all the batteries were charged up, camera mounted in the garden, and ready to see what comes tonight.  If the night visitor is caught on camera tonight, it'll be posted on the Straight Out of the Camera Sunday.  Stay tuned.

Until next time, God bless.

Oh, Lynn, this IS really exciting. You may need more than one night to find out who's out there, but never fear, your critters WILL appear!

Yeah, I know the critter may not come or the camera may need to be moved to a different position.

After this mystery is solved, I plan to move it to more secluded areas on the property -- there's a meadow just off a creek (when there's water). :D I'm really interested in what roams there as well as several other places.

This is exciting Lynn, I can't wait to see what shows up.

That's a great idea to later move it close to a creek. Who knows what might be lurking there.

Wow, that's a nice one.

Nice looking camera. We have been talking about getting one for our backyard. We know we have loads of wildlife and it would be fun to see what's out there at night. I think seeing yours has inspired me to order one.
