Garden Cam, with New Rake
So far, our fancy garden cam hasn't picked up any wildlife of note. The only clear images of a four-legged creature we've obtained have been of Olga.
We did get a photo of a blurry streak, undoubtedly a fox, and two more of a pair of glowing eyes -- probably the same fox. But the camera seems best at taking pictures of us...
For example, here's Dave, gardening in his pajamas.
For about a week we had four leftover chicken balls (battered and fried spheres of ground chicken) from an order of Chinese food in the back of our refrigerator. We finally decided on Sunday night that we weren't going to eat them, so I put them out near the camera, hoping to attract our fox.
That's me, putting out the chicken balls.
Did the fox show up? Well, possibly. Something ate the chicken. But we didn't get any pictures of it. Could the fox be so savvy that it knows how to disable garden cams?
The most photographed subject this week was me, raking leaves with our new rake -- a total of 48 pictures, which I was able to string together into a rather entertaining animated* image:
Meanwhile, we're still holding out for a good fox pic!
