Who goes there?

I have two trailcams set up. Sometimes the critters cross the meadow and amble around the end of the frogpond.

The raccoons were a hoot in the forest. As I went through the 30-second clips I noticed a lump in the bracken. It wasn't until I went back that I saw that it hunkered down having a nap. Then, they were back and the quiet one had a fight with a sibling.

Our big buck continues to cruise around.

We have one doe hanging about, as well. Watch at about 40 seconds in, in the second clip, as she sticks out her tongue.

This turkey is the one still missing a tail feather.


Our son-in-law is running for the Green Party.
Isabelle helped with signage!
In other news, Canada had a big, national debate on TV last night. As they went up to the Museum of History, there were rallies to cheer for the six candidates. Our kids went. 
Dressed in their greens!

They were behind the neon green sign at the 13 second mark of this clip: 
Green Party Leader Elizabeth May and her husband John Kidder arrived at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Que. in a Tesla vehicle ahead of the official English-language leaders’ debate. The kids are in the 20 - 30 sec. section. It's so much fun! You can't really see them, but it was fun.

Those raccoons are so adorable. It's funny how all baby animals romp around and play the same way...at least the four-legged ones!

Night videos, those eyes, and what fun together, pity the little one didn't get to rest a bit longer. Hope all the campaigning goes well/

There is so much drama going on right in your own backyard. It's all so interesting.

Cute and playful raccoon kits while their mom is all business. The debate was a bit of a free for all with candidates talking over each other. Elizabeth May still has my support!

The raccoons are quite fun to watch!

these trail cams are great! I think my son wants to do the same on his property. Enjoy the rest of your week and thank you for visiting my blog this week.
