I'm still in the process of carefully documenting each of the approximately 500 images from the deer survey. While recording the contents of each image into a database file, I've come to realize that each photo must be examined very carefully. Sometimes a photo that looks "blank" actually has one or more animals hidden in plain sight. Here's a good example (click photos for larger images):
So how many deer do you see in the photo? Look closely! The answer is posted below.
And what about this photo? Do you recognize the animal in the lower center of the frame? Scroll down to see the answer revealed.
And here's one more. This was a really difficult one for me to figure out, so don't be ashamed if you can't locate the animal in this photo. It's left of center. What is it? The answer is revealed below.
We're currently using the cameras in hopes of capturing more photos of the bobcats and coyotes that live on or move through the Sanctuary. In September we'll re-deploy the cameras for a late summer survey of the deer population. We'll share more photos as they become available.
