My New Camera!

This one films things that move in the dark and emit infrared radiation. In other words, animals! That would include the human kind too. The camera is a NO FLASH Cuddeback digital jobbie and it came with a 256MB Compact Flash memory. The NO FLASH is a misnomer because it does flash, only it flashes invisible infrared. This is so the animals won’t be spooked. My first test wasn’t too successful. I got an empty picture of the veg garden and a couple pictures of me fiddling with the camera. But I understand it better now and hope to get at least a deer if not a pine*. The pine* has stopped visiting our woodshed for some reason. I had to buy a flash card reader to look at the pics because neither computer would recognize the camera when connected by a USB cable. It’s better anyway to just remove the flash card for viewing rather than the whole camera. :-)

* pine == porcupine :-)

    Guess the pine knows what’s up!
    He’ll probably come back around again.

    While I’m waitin for the pine to show again, I’m goin after deer. Got her set up on a tree out back where there’s a bunch a deer tracks nearby. We’ll see. (Just hope the batteries don’t freeze in this cold!)

    Oh, wow, yeah, didn’t think of that (about the batteries)!
    Well, a deer is better than nuttin! Maybe you’ll even get a moose! Or a BEAR! OH, wait, no bears until April. Then , watch out!

    Remind me to take my new bird feeder down in April. I’m not in a hurry to see any bears up close and personal again.. For that matter, no Mooses either.

    A ‘Pine, though, I could see again.

    Can’t wait for spring! This deep cold is a bummer… Almost Feburary! That means March, April and then May, sweet May. Like a gift, it is.

    Yup, this deep cold’s a bummer, and we’re gettin a fresh super-cooled arctic air blast around Friday. I’m afraid the cold is affecting how the camera works.

    I got a picture of myself late Sunday about a half hour after I had screwed the camera into a tree, and when I took it down Monday morning and pulled out the card the picture looked overexposed, all white-ish with a loss of detail. (There were no other pictures on the card.)

    The pine’s friendly, nash. He wants to play. Well, I’m just kidding there. I think what the pine wants is to be left alone and to do whatever it is he wants to do. He’s quite the explorer too.
