Up until a few nights ago, I never thought there were possums in my area. However, they seem to love the nightlife in my backyard. Here is one video of the possum shuffling off into the darkness and another of him getting up close and personal with the camera.
My night camera is attached to the trunk of a tree which has a lot of sharp edges. This one raccoon seems to enjoy rubbing up against it right in front of the camera lens and getting a good scratch. He also brought a friend.
Raccoons raid garbage cans and tear into anything that could reasonably be considered edible. They have to sleep sometime, though. Here is a video of a trash panda returning home after dinner.
I put up a new night camera to capture wildlife at night to see what is going on in the middle of the night. Below please find three videos the motion sensor camera caught while the world was sleeping.
In the dead of night, everything can appear so still and motionless. It is creepy to think that the world is deserted at this time in a state of eternal nothingness m. Any sound is amplified in this quiet time and any signs of life are scarier when they appear where no other life is around to help if things go wrong
Today is March 21st, the vernal equinox and the start of spring. It is a time with so many possibilities after a long, grueling winter. Never ever underestimate the power of making positive change on this Earth every day and every night. That old saying is true. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
The first full moon of 2022 is the wolf moon. It sits gloriously in the sky in the season with the longest nights of the year.
Happy New Year 2022. I look forward to spending many long, sleepless nights with all nightroamers out there. To anyone awake in the middle of the night, just know that you are not alone.
The Halloweekend is upon us. Samhain, the Celtic New Years, celebrates the coming dark half of the year, when the days are short and the nights are long. The veil between light and dark is at its thinnest and who knows what mischief will take place.
Saturday, September 25th, is the autumnal equilux. There will be 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness on this date.
