I took the 640 pictures that were not used, resized them to 300 pixels on the long side, saved at 55 % which zipped up to about 5000K or 4.88 meg.

Open the file with irfanview and go through them as fast as you can click and it is sorta like an old time movie. Kind of fun.

I will email the zip file to those that want it, just ask and tell me where to send it. Limited time offer.

You just reminded me that I want to put out small dishes of sunflower seed, cheap cat & dog food, maybe even a water dish, etc. just to get a little more action going.

Kind of hard here as there are many patrolling dogs and cats that are hungry enough to prowl the neighbors for scraps and food dishes to raid.

Had mostly wild critters on the mountain and a lot fewer dogs to run them off so I was getting a lot more variety. Did not have a dog there on the place Iike we do here.

Will have to experiment......

Also, today, Blondie was going at the corn like a deer does while we were there. I wonder what they feed her at her house? She is too fat to not be getting anything.....

Nothin' yet - I suspect it's a squirrel, though.

Oh yes, he is on guard duty for us. So he breaks up the deer real regular. I think he does not scare them that much as they keep coming back and just watch for him. Bawahahahaha

Eco & Sam from across the road cruise through also. Out cats in the day time and at night, there are 3-4 that come through semi-regular. The white one, the stripped one from the last few nights and a calico from up the road a ways.

Had one coyote so far that I know of, couple of skunks, etc. Just need a bigger variety of food out but...... With lose dogs, that food gets eaten to quick for the wild critters to find it and as soon as any of the dogs discover a critter, the chase is on so the ones like I had down on the mountain are scarce.

I had lots of skunks, possums, coyote, fox, armadillo, rabbits, which I have here, just not at the feeder much. We also have a resident road runner almost all summer. Not sure where it is right now.

Having Zeus on guard duty is worth more to us than the lack of critters he may cause. Just the different, more built up area is not nearly as good for a big variety of critters.

I moved the one camera to see if I can get morte interesting shots.

I've had armadillos dig up freshly planted stuff looking for worms.
Road runners, in Arkansas?
You do not fear for your animals outside with coyotes around?

Our 8 cats are put up each night. We did that on the mountain also as there were many more critters that would get a domestic cat. But there was a good sized feral community of cats on that mountain so I don't know for sure. Around here, hawks & owls are the biggest taker of cats next to cars.

Lost more dogs on the mountain to irate chicken owners than we did to coyotes. I guess coyotes had easier things to catch.

Up here is the first place we have had a dog and at 130 pounds, the coyotes would have to be very hungry. Seldom here of any dogs gone missing from critters. Lots of the kind people steal in closer to the towns and gentrified areas.

We here coyotes at night when we have the windows open but they are across the valley or way South of us as we are in the area between town living and boon dock living. Lots of dogs running lose and lots of shooting all around. Too much for the coyotes I would think. Coyotes move in to many places but with all the shooting, that just might be the tipping point and the fact that the local dogs put up a combined howl when they see/smell a coyote.

Prolly do take a dog now and then but not right around here.

18F here right now so I added another corn dish and put out a little hay to see if that would interest them now.

In the back of the Mule? Devil, he is turning into a love bug about Zeus. I don't think Zeus is completely OK with it yet.

I had a feeling he was gonna go to the 'deer stand' with us ( me, zeus & blondie ) one of these days and it has been warm enough that the cats don't just come to the door as soon as they get out of their condo and want in our house. He hitched a ride today. I still can't get Zeus to get in it. May need to build a ramp & he might.

SQUIRREL!

The pics came out really blown out, for some reason, probably because the cam isn't meant to take pics in such a confined space, but they were good enough for us to ID our uninvited tenant, and we now know the times of day he comes and goes, so he'll be locked out shortly ...

https://goo.gl/photos/Syt6JrfGrCpCdEkD9

Those last photos I colorized with the 'heat map' filter in Picasa.

I was wondering if one of those night shots was a coyote. Don't get too many loose dogs around here, though someone's gate might have blown open (the Lab in the day pics has his owner with him, he's just not in the shots). Wish that pic was better. I have adjusted the shutter speed so maybe they will come out a bit better.

You can adjust the shutter speed on the "Browning"?
T^hat is what I have.... Which model do you have?

I have the cheapest, Model# BTC-5HD Strike Force.

Can't find the instruction book just this minute so no idea on shutter adjustment, just picture quality adjust as I remember....

Hummmm, maybe I needed to go for more when I got mine....

It's a Bushnell Trophy Cam HD Aggressor. There's just a choice of Low, Medium and High for the Night Vision shutter. The default is Low - should have changed that before putting it in the attic - pics would have been less blown out.

OK, thanks for the info. Will look it up later.

I need to adjust camera aim and lose the hay.

Yeah, Oak. Rotten it is. You want rotting or good solid?

Lot of hard wood around, green or dead or fresh cut dead, etc..
What you looking for?

I need to go to Petit Jean soon, could leave some chunks at the visitor station.

Take the rotten one, cover in plastic like the decoupage stuff?

I have a small oak stump from my 5 acres in a tank, looks nice.
I have to get the rotten stuff off, I usually soak it outside in a tub for a couple of months.

A lot of natural food out there this year. Not very cold for long spells yet either.

Poor Zeus. He thinks winter is over and Summer just jumped out and bit him. One depressed doggie who has not had near enough cold weather. I told him y the cold will be back ( I hope we get more cold, still a lot of bugs need killin ) and he can walk without panting again......

Pace at the stand is picking up:

Album start : Album for today

Did not check the CritterCams for 48 hours and so I had 1055 pictures to cull (saved 68 ) & process. Took about an hour.

I have moved one camera to the rock garden to see if I can get more interesting pictures of little critters. Time will tell.
