Meanwhile on the Rim

Time flies when you're having fun – and when you're a naturalist any day outdoors can be an enjoyable day, even when it's cold and raining or hot and humid. And if you're a photographer as well, any day outdoors is a chance for a good, rarely a great, photograph. So I spend at least part of each day outdoors wandering forest and field to see what I can see and occasionally doing a bit of research.

Lucky guy? Yes, and for that I feel grateful and somewhat guilty; but the ability to do that is because of decisions I made when I was 17 and 18. Decisions and/or mistakes made as teenagers frequently impact our entire lives for good or ill.

Enough philosophy and reflecting. Meanwhile, on the rim my trail camera went about it's quiet business of recording videos of the birds and mammals that followed the wildlife trail along the rim of the Allegheny Plateau during the summer and fall –


The camera on the rim is in a spot that few humans ever go, it can stay there through hot humid summers, hunting seasons and the cold and snow of winter just quietly doing its thing – taking videos of wildlife.


  1. Thanks for taking me back to summertime, nice to see all these critters and the green leaves.

  2. Always enjoy your videos! A brief taste of being out there.

  3. Great video, I love seeing the wildlife in their habitat. Great captures of the bear with the two cubs and the bucks. I loved all the images. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  4. Nice to see many different wildlife visit the same area over time. Enjoyed watching it.

  5. So nice those creatures have undisturbed terrain, and that you're quietly filming and sharing with us. Kim in PA
