Caught In The Act

“Hey!” says the great egret as it chases the cattle egret. “That’s my mouse!”

Cameras capture birds and animals in surprising ways. A stack of shorebirds. A bobcat on a prickly perch.

And deer running from …?

In New Jersey a buck ran through a front yard, jumped over two cars, and miscalculated the landing. Despite that he hopped out of the truck bed and ran away.

This month deer are still in the rut and still running into traffic. Caught in the act.

  1. I love these examples. I am really impressed by the bobcat…it must be 20 or 30 feet in the air, and had to climb that spiny cactus to get there! Deer are amazing jumpers. I once saw a deer clear what had to be a 5 or 6 foot fence in a horse pasture jumping from a standing start over the fence.
