Let's all take a minute to appreciate the skunks of Northern Virginia.
One of my biggest surprises so far in my experiences of camera-trapping has actually been a lack of skunks. This is only my third event of getting a skunk on camera in all of northern Virginia, ever.
I know there are many of them around because I see them walking in the daytime, see them dead on the road, smell them in the air frequently, and see them at least once a week in my backyard in the summer,
So why are skunks so camera shy? Well, I don't really know. I never thought it would be this hard to get a skunk on camera in the woods at night.
