Trail cameras capture local nature in action

We sleep through the night and mindlessly spend our days at work.

But nature goes on.

A few days of a trail camera on a tiny patch of Harvey County is easy proof. Animals came and went to feed. Often on each other. This shot of the Cooper’s hawk and the crow is proof.While I was at working in Wichita this Cooper's hawk was working in Harvey County. He grabbed this crow in-flight.I’d walked part of this property a few miles east of Newton and hadn’t seen much wildlife Sunday morning.

I didn’t see many signs of wildlife, either, like droppings, tracks or where whitetail bucks were rubbing trees with their antlers.
