Our friend Chris The Deer Hunter has had a motion-sensitive infrared camera strapped to a tree up near the summit for about 3/4 of a year now. (He’s been out of town for a while.) I don’t mess with it– it’s his camera. But he’s back in town and folks are starting to think about Fall, what with the temperatures forecast to fall all the way down to about 68° tonight.
Chris emailed the other day to say he and his lovely wife and child would be coming out to the farm soon. And I could take down the camera if I wished to see what’s been happening.
So I did. And I downloaded the 1000+ photos that it took between 12/25/14 and mid-April when its batteries finally gave out.
Pictured above is one of my favorites. It was taken about six days before the great snow storm of February ’15. (Yes. That’s a deer. Big deal. And the time stamp is off by an hour, it’s 16:48.)
Look at that sky! You really don’t get six or eight inches of snow in Mississippi without some advanced warning.
Other noteworthy photos from the camera include
This poor fellow who we’ll name “Lop-Sidey Guy.”
And finally, “The Canadian.”
