Camera Trap Catches Doe and Fawns

The motion-detecting camera trap is typically set in the woods surrounding the Alden home, often catching the rear-ends of deer, raccoons, crows, and the occasional human.  On June 23, however, the camera caught its most beautiful pictures yet … a doe with two fawns.

In some pictures, only one fawn is in view.  One fawn is noticeably smaller than the other.

I’ll continue to place the camera trap where I’ll have the best opportunities to catch some interesting wildlife.  Last weekend, I locked the camera around a tree along the Rapid River in Kalkaska County, facing a large stump with animal holes dug below it.  All I got was a pair of pictures of an elderly man hiking, but I’ll keep trying.  I’ll share any interesting pictures on this web site.
