A NEW TOY FOR THE DECK

One of my birthday gifts last month from my brother-in-law, niece and nephew in Germany, was a trail cam.  I am having so much fun with it.  I am experimenting with settings right now but am very happy with what I captured with my delightful gift.  Thank you my Darlings!

  2. Wow! These are fantastic photos! So this is the kind of camera you set up or attach to a tree, and go away and leave it? Is it motion activated? I would love one, what a great gift!

    1. I'm finding out how much fun this is. It is the expectation of what you are going to discover at the end of 24 hours. I will probably leave it for a few days soon but right now I can't stop myself from checking each evening.

  9. I have somewhere around twenty trail cams, love getting candid shots of our local wildlife. These pictures are very good, I wonder if you would share what brand of trail camera these pictures are from?
