It worked! Hubby put the game cam where something seemed to have created a path from the creek to the pond. We'd seen fresh otter scat near there.
I'd hoped that the flash would scare the otters away. Sure, they're cute, but they've eaten most of the fish from our ponds.
Considering that this picture was taken a full minute after the previous one, I don't think that strategy is going to work.
When I swap over to the new Blogger, I'll create a category for the game cam, so you'll be able to click and see all the related posts together. But since I'm getting a lot of Google hits on the topic lately, I'll mention again that this is a Cuddeback game camera that we ordered online from "Boss Buck".
