A part of every day's chore list is to set out feed at the pond for the ducks,
and also to feed our fish.
We have a few of theses enormous gold fish in our pond.
They've lived here for years and years.
Originally there were a few small goldfish,
who grew and grew and had babies.
Then their babies grew and grew and had more babies.
We keep the fish food in a metal trash can in the duck hut by the pond.
Over the weekend we noticed that the trash can lid was off
and lying by the trash can each morning that we stopped by to feed the fish.
Was a bear visiting the duck hut?
Doubtful, because not much of the fish food was gone.
In order to solve the mystery, we hung a game camera on the front of the trash can.
We also put a large rock on top of the can to discourage the would-be thief.
You can't blame a fellow for trying!
With woods surrounding all sides of our farm,
we have our share of wildlife.
I love seeing wild animals, but prefer not to have to feed them all.
We secure feed in locked barrels so that we have enough to feed our own critters.
We have another game camera on our platform tent in the woods.
There is a rather large herd of deer in our woods,
so we always get plenty of deer photos.
I especially liked this one... Mama and baby...
We keep a wood pile by the tent that is covered by a tarp.
You might notice that the tarp has been ripped open...
evidence that a bear has been around the tent in the past few weeks.

This is a blogger option that does not record anything but the vote.
It is anonymous.
The data will help me with a project I am working on.
