Teton Tuesday: trap-camera video highlights

 
Below are a series of video clips all recorded in the last 30 days that capture a variety of Tejon wildlife as they engage their environment in the everyday struggle for survival out on the ranch. The woods may seem quiet, but it is truly incredible how alive they are with activity of all sorts, from the deepest canyon creek to the tallest windswept ridge. These videos were gathered using the same series of motion-sensor cameras featured in last week's post.

Mountain lion. Bronco Canyon:
It turns out even big cats don't like getting their paws wet.

Mule deer. Winter's Ridge:
Despite its inconspicuous design, camouflaged exterior and silent shutter, it is amazing how quickly many animals become aware of my cameras' presence. Their curiosity often allows for an exciting close-up!
 
Bobcat. Comanche Creek
 
Wild pig wallow. Bronco Canyon:
I can't think of a better way to cool off during the mid-day heat.
 
Rocky Mountain elk. Tejon Hills
 
Mountain lion.  Martinez Ridge
