    vreihen: not sure- what would Bruce do with a full sized roo? They can be cantankerous beasts if riled - but mostly they are shy creatures and they just want to be left alone.

    For some reason this year they have taken a liking to a grand old red-gum that dominates the lower paddock - I guess it's the tasty grass

    I suspect that trail cameras are not a common thing down under. They are digital cameras that people strap to trees in wooded areas, and leave there for a week or more. Most have infrared lighting for night shots, and snapshots are triggered by an animal moving in front of them. Think of it like 21st century trapping, where the person goes out once a week or so and collects the camera SD cards to see what pictures they snapped. Hence, asking what Bruce's reaction would be to finding a kangaroo picture on his trail camera.....

    I would enjoy watching them. I love to watch the animals in nature.

    Finding a roo bouncing around Uwe's place in the mountains, now that would give me pause!

    I just set the cameras (3 still working) to take 5 sec videos on trip. I likely will not get back down to the mountain until late September or early October. I know I will be there in November for that is deer hunting season and I would like to get out this year. Last year, business kept me here in Philly.

    I share the photos because it is not often that city people get to see the animals in their natural surrounds. These cameras we bought 3 years ago now have worked really well. They have survived the bears wacking them... they have survived attacks by insects. They operate year round. I try to get there every 2-3 months to collect photos, replace batteries, and see what has been moving around the property. I only post highlights... we see much more activity than I have posted.

    You should have PM'd that -- we coulda had a lot of fun having Katie photoshop a 'roo into an existing picture and then putting it back on the SD card in one of the cameras for Bruce to find.

    That was my first thought - it'd be funny to mess with Bruce's - or any trail-cam owner's - mind by printing a 3 X 4' photo and sneaking up behind the camera and (attempting to) make it appear there was a kangaroo in Pennsylvania (or wherever). (Keep in mind I have no knowledge of the mechanics of trailcams, and I now see the 5-sec viddy would kill the photo idea).
    Hell, it'd probably make the evening news here, they are so desperate to fill airtime with fluff between the suffering... (I avoid the news when possible). The TV production (set design/construction, lighting, talent, editing) here in Nashville is ten times better than LA or NYC, but the writing and subject matter is so absurd I'm surprised the anchors can keep a straight face - and they sometimes don't.

    I'm amazed that they let me walk out onto the deck to take several pictures this morning, and equally surprised that Blizzard's barking fit when he saw them from the deck also didn't send them scurrying.....
