I have been wanting to do a post like since last spring where I share some of the highlights from the game camera at our Arizona Desert Photo Retreat.  Last winter and spring I put a game camera out by the water hole every evening.  It was always fun to check it in the morning, as I never knew what new animals I might see!  There were some nice surprises.  Here are some of the highlights.

I figured this was a good time to post this.  I left the game camera at a water drip over the summer.  Turns out, it sounds like there is an issue with the waterline, so we are flying to Tucson for a very short trip to check on the property, make sure the water drip is working, and pull any images from the camera summer.  Makes me wonder what was there while we were gone! 

Gray fox. We had a pair that were nightly visitors to the water hole, and often seen during the day as well.

    Wonderful! What a variety of wildlife to be seen. It must have been quite exciting to come across these animals and birds as you played back the cam!

    When I used to skindive in my younger years, I took a couple of night dives in the ocean in Western Australia with our club and saw a whole different world on the move.
