Something seems to be watching the deer from behind the cypress. Unfortunately, at this point I had the reconyx RC60 on minimum setting of 3 frames per sequence.
The deer was photographed at sunrise. A few hours earlier, a pig triggered the camera in the darkness, setting off the thermal blast. There was nothing on the side of the tree at that time.
I don't claim this is anything other than an interesting series of images. I don't know what it is.
