Capture anything interesting on your handheld or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or anything unique? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run a photo from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine) and any other details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Often times interesting images of wildlife can be found right in an urban backyard. The chipmunk in the pair of photos, which has been named “Chippy,” is a frequent visitor to Fran Berdy’s backyard in Parsons. On the left, Chippy stands guard over the entrance to his hole. On the right, Chippy’s cheeks bulge out with birdseed as he feasts on a feeder that Berdy said is his “breakfast buffet bar.” To capture the images, Berdy used a Canon Power Shot with the regular zoom feature while she posted on her deck - proof that wildlife can be as close as your backdoor.
