Trails in the Grass

Each morning when we walk down our hill and around the field with the dogs, we notice new trails in the grass that must have been made sometime in the night. The blades are gently bent where it appears an animal has passed through. A bear? A deer? A coyote? A Fisher cat? The trails feel too small to be made by raccoons, rabbits, or a fox.

Riley sniffs furiously and follows the trails through the field until he gets bored and comes barreling back down to the road.

I'd like to install a motion detecting night vision camera on the deck to snap pictures of any night activity in the yard. Josh seems blasé about it, but I think it would be a thrill to wake up to pictures of a deer or bear family cruising through the yard.
