I bought the camera on Wednesday afternoon, certain that I would set it up and have it doing its thing right away ... not. The camera is easy to set up and use, but the SD card I had on hand was incompatible, which meant another trip to the store on Thursday. Yesterday afternoon, with a new SD card installed, I took the camera out to the Austin Garden and mounted it on the little building there. The camera has a motion sensor, and it takes photos whenever it senses movement.
Let's see what we got.
It's a good view of the garden ... and the crabgrass. Don't worry about the crabgrass, I sprayed it with Ornamec the other day and it's already starting to die. Ornamec is a selective herbicide that only kills grass, not broadleaf weeds, or roses, so I figured I should pull out the Nutsedge and Poke Weed while I was there ... since the ground is damp from the previous day's storm and the weeds are easy to pull.
That's a really nice flower on 'Belle Story'. I wonder if I can get a decent photo of it with my point-and-shoot?
This flower from 'Sister Elizabeth' sure smells good.
After I walked away and went back to the house, not a single thing moved or was photographed last night. In a little while, I will trudge back to the barn to put the SD card back into the camera ... and hope for some action out there tonight. As soon as I capture something interesting, I will let you know. (Kathleen has also used her camera to 'nanny cam' her dogs in the house while she's away. I fully intend to do this to see which one of our dogs plays with throw pillows at night.)
In the meantime, here is the photo I took of 'Belle Story'
Happy Friday, Everyone!
