I was surprised to find these rare images on my ‘back field’ trailcam after checking it this weekend.
This little guy passed through on New Year’s Eve just a couple of hours before the arrival of 2013!
Of the over 500, 000 trailcam images I have taken since moving to Ottawa 14 years ago, I have never captured an image of this particular animal. In the forests north of town they are certainly more common, but within City Limits I would say they are a rare sight indeed.
With most of the deer gone from around my property for the winter, this little guy is a sight for sore eyes.
Soooo, can you guess what fur bearing animal this is?? Here is a close-up shot:
