A Little Bit of Everything

Plenty of pictures to go around after the latest remote cameras check in Northern NH and Vermont. Two of the cameras had been deployed for over two years. These are just a few.

Remote cameras and bears mix like oil and water. Almost every time a bear shows up, the camera gets  "inspected". You can guess what happens next (taken with an IR camera).

A coyote pup inspecting a pole with velcro. The pole provides a reference size and collects fur which can be used for DNA analysis. In a show of force, a bull moose snapped the stick at the base a month after this photo was taken.
 Legs for days. A Snow shoe hare showing off.
