You always want to do a test shot first to make sure everything's working correctly......
So here's our first visitor at 1:53 AM (I can see that I'll have to make an adjustment to the camera's time clock though). This little doe looks slightly moth-eaten as she begins to shed her gray-brown winter coat.
We usually don't see single deer in the backyard and this visit was no exception. These two are probably sisters and were born last spring.
This camera doesn't make any noise when it takes a picture, but the flash is blindingly bright!
I'd say the deer were a little annoyed by this and they didn't stay around for very long. I got one more picture on the other camera and I'm pretty sure it was probably the other deer that walked away from this feeder. Their visits have become a little more sporadic now with the arrival of spring and other readily available sources of food. Sometimes 2 or 3 days will go by before all the corn is cleaned out of these tray feeders.
I'll keep these cameras out in the backyard until we have to move them for deer hunting scouting, so stay tuned for future updates on nocturnal visitors to my backyard. I'm still hoping for pictures of fox and/or possums with their little ones.
