If you're stealthy enough, you really don't need one of those game camera thingamabobs. You really just need to get out there, be quiet, stop, look, listen, and you will find critters.
If you sit still for a while, they may even come to you ... like these deer below.
Rurality seems to have a knack for interesting game camera shots with lots of critter variety, but most of us seem to get pics of moving branches, deer butts, and half armadillos. If you're just trying to document what's on your property, or catch Sasquatch strolling by, the game camera may be what you want, but there's no substitute for getting out in the woods.
It's just you and them out there and if you're good enough ...
... and quiet enough ...
... you'll come home with the shot.
Oops ... the secret is out.
Okay, THIS time, I was stalking these deer from the chilipepper red upstairs bedroom where I write Pure Florida.
From this window, I can see occasional kites swooping by,deer grazing, and the barred owls (3 at a time a few evenings ago).
It's a wonder I get anything written.
I'll end with a little puzzler.
Now, what do you suppose this could be?
