There really is nothing worse than unexpected company when you’re not in the mood. So, imagine the agony of having 200 uninvited and very confused guests just show up at your house one night… While sheep are not actually, particularly frightening animals, this picture of so many with glowing eyes looks pretty scary.
Luckily for us all, he knew exactly what to do in such a situation: get it all on camera. The flash of the trail cam probably caught their attention, which is why they are all just staring at the camera. This truly is a rare sighting, but at the same time also a little creepy.
Buck With a Hat
If you think your hat is weird, here's a new standard for comparison. Just take this young buck for example. His antlers caught a tumbleweed and now that means he's wearing a strange hat, and while it may look like a lovely crown to have, he can't seem to get rid of it.
We've all had our struggles, but as humans, our issues are quite unlike that of wild animals. For one thing, we'll never know what it's like to have a tumbleweed stuck in our antlers. We’re hoping he finds a deer mate that will help him get it off, either with his hooves or with his teeth.
Watch Out! The Bear Is Running AT Us!
How scary! This is one mean-looking bear and we haven't even mentioned how big and powerful it is. Imagine it was running right towards you while you were spending a day outdoors. It sure is a good thing that this bear is caught on camera and not seen in real life.
From the looks of it, it appears as if the bear is walking right toward the camera. Maybe it can see the shiny lens and wants to take a closer look. It's pretty cool that we live in a time where we can capture this kind of footage on camera.
This little critter is 'otterly' adorable! We're not exactly sure what it's trying to do, either it's drying itself off in the leaves, making a nest, or giving the camera a show. Considering that otters are generally quick and sly, trail cams are so worth it for footage like this.
We don't often see them playing outside the water like this but what we do know from nature documentaries, they are known for their playful behavior, and this image proves that. It can be entertaining to watch them fumble around the water so it's pretty special to see it on the ground as it scatters the leaves.
How amazing is this picture of an owl which is about to strike this deer? Owls are fairly shy creatures and we don't often see this at this close an angle, so it really is a rare find. This deer probably didn't even see this owl swoop down and attempt to grab his antler.
It's likely that this owl is unaware that its target will be a little too heavy to pick up. It should probably target a smaller kill, considering the size of its tiny mouth. Perhaps the deer got in the way of something else the owl was trying to take? Ill-timing!
