Best 2018 Camera Trap Captures

As 2018 comes to a close, I am sharing the best camera trap captures from my research at Comanche Springs Astronomy Campus this year. Some captures are quite remarkable, especially of the bat.

This year found the campus being flooded twice and two my cameras were completely underwater and survived.  Bird diversity was seen to be increasing and of course, the raccoons are still the most curious animals surveyed. Sadly, the roadrunners were not as abundant this year.

Enjoy!

Yes – bats do use the Beaver Pond. Love how the camera picked up its wing structure.

There is so much going on this capture from the turkeys, to the turkey vultures, to the great blue heron.
