Nighttime visitors

My husband recently bought an infrared "gamecam" that we can strap to a tree or post, program it, and let it capture photos of whatever moves in front of it until we turn it off. It's turning out to be my new toy, and I'm having a ball with it! So far we've captured photos of our cats, raccoons, and possums. At left is one of a raccoon crossing our yard. Usually the critter that trips the shutter is moving so fast that only a part of it shows in the photo. I think there must be a couple of seconds lag tme before the photo is taken. It certainly makes life interesting!


  1. That is the coolest thing I've ever seen!

    Wow, I can't wait to see what else you capture on film!

  2. Wow!

    We had something stuff cat food in my car (resulting in a smelly mess) I sure could have used this.

    Prayers continue for your healing.
