Hidden camera shots.

Remember the trail camera that I blogged about last month? It's a motion sensor camera that Doug got for Christmas and we initiated it by taking random photos of our pets on Christmas day. Well, he couldn't wait to take it to his favorite hunting area and put it in place. He did so at the end of December with intentions to go back the following week to retrieve it. Problem is that it snowed before he could go back, making the roads to that particular location impassible so he's been waiting...

This past weekend he was able to retrieve it, and you can only imagine his excitement when he called to tell me that there were 87 photos on it. The vast majority of the photos were of does {a deer, a female deer...} but he did get this shot of a bobcat {that I was most excited about!!!} as well as one of a coyote but it was really dark and I decided not to post it.

For the record, Doug had placed some deer attractant on the ground at this spot, that's why the animals are drawn to there.
When I got my new point-and-shoot last year I gave Doug my old camera and started bugging encouraging him to take some pictures on his outings. I'm happy to report that he did just that this past weekend. Check out this sunset that he and his brother witnessed! Arizona sunset at it's finest {with a big storm rolling in behind it}.
And this next photo is for Carrie. Doug took his first self-portrait!!! {I'm posting this with his permission.} He's hiding behind camouflage and gee, I can hardly see him...

{Shhhh...don't tell his brothers.}

Fun stuff, eh?

Amazing! What a great way to spy on the animal world! And I don't remember seeing Doug's picture--camo really works, I guess! xo

What lovely wildlife photos, that camera is such a good idea when you have the chance to see animals like that in the area.
As for the self portrait, that camoflage is so good, if it hadn't been for his eyes, I never would have known where he was!
