Nightlife - Da ist voll was los
It was a long cherished dream of mine: a night vision camera, or wildlife camera as it is also known. Curious as I am, I wanted to know, who is strolling around in our garden at night and who is responsible for this chaos at our compost. Somebody even kidnap the lid of the compost and hid it so good that I couldn't find it anymore.
However, since a few days I'm the proud owner of such a camera... but as you soon will see I have to practice a lot more. Noah and I fixed the camera and worked as test objects. Noah doesn't think much of the camera :o).
During the first night the camera just shot four pictures: on two you couldn't see anything, on one was Noah sniffing around and on the last one, was somebody with a torch. The last one was worrying us a lot, until we saw the time: it was Mrs Gwundergarten who was on her way picking up the camera. Phiew! :o)
Was das für ein Ufo ist, das uns um viertel nach sieben abends besucht hat, bleibt wohl ein Geheimnis.
In the second night there were a lot more pictures: 7200 photos. Uff! Well, on 6100 you could see nothing, or nothing that could be identified, like on this photo here. Not sure what UFO this was... it will stay a secret forever.
This little thing was a mouse. I really had to laugh when I saw those big round eyes shinig against the camera like a little alien. (Maybe you should click the photo big to see it proparly)
A bonsai owl? No, just a little mouse.
It was quite busy during the night... or did it just love to be in the show?
This guy turned up several times during the night... or maybe he/she sent one of his/her friends. But be assured, there's never any meat in the compost, only vegetable and fruits... must have been a veggie fox.
But he or she looks quite healthy and well fed. So beautiful.
In the early morning a marten came around.
His paws look so cute.
Oh, you again?
What has he heard?
It seems as it haven't been importend enough to stop breakfast.
Ich bin gespannt, was die Kamera uns noch alles offenbaren wird. Sollte sich ein Bär oder vielleicht doch ein Schlumpf zeigen, werdet Ihr davon erfahren.
I can't wait to see what else the camera will spot. If it will ever show a bear or a garden gnome, you will be the second to know :o)
Und wer Lust hat an der Osterverlosung auf meinem Buechkafi Blog mitzumachen, der husche einfach mal rüber.
And with this cheerful pennywort I wish you all a good start into a new week.
