Discussions and banter of Northern Virginia's Wildlife and Large-Scale Trail Camera Projects
Tuesday, July 1, 2014
Usually I have absolutely no idea what will be recorded on a camera-trap's SD card each time I check it, but sometimes I can tell exactly what will probably come up on some of the images.
This happens in the case of skunks. Naturally, I have a very strong nose, which I consider to be a very good thing for working in parks and wildlife. Skunks leave a trail of stink wherever they go and have gotten pretty darn good at tracking and trailing them.
I knew exactly what I was going to find on the camera's SD card this time, because as soon as I got close to the camera, I could smell the skunk spray from the previous night.
