Garden Cam Vacation Update
While we were away in Florida, I left the Garden Cam set up on the patio, where the fox (or foxes?) sneak under the fence from the neighbor's. We got about two dozen pictures of them -- they seemed very curious about the camera and were often staring or sniffing at it.
All the photos were at dusk or night, though -- which is why they're in black and white -- and they weren't very distinct. It's hard to photograph the foxes at this time of year because it's dark so much of the time.
The only daytime critters that passed in front of the camera were a nonchalant cat...
...and numerous squirrels. Oh, and pigeons.
While the cat's away, the mice will play -- in this case one mouse, slipping down the side of this rock wall like a backwards S. Do you see him? Middle of picture, about a third of the way from the right side. (This was after the foxes knocked the camera askew, an occurrence captured in a series of indistinguishable blurs.)
Fortunately, no two-legged wildlife prowled the patio in our absence!
