My field guides are mostly about the showy flowers or ones that you might commonly see around roads, things like buttercups and daisies. Tiny (but still beautiful) flowers that only grow singly or in small groups are harder to track down.
The trail cameras have caught some animals that I don't ever photograph in the winter. There was a bear feeding on clover I planted a couple of years ago for the ruffed grouse and deer. This was a very small fellow, probably about 60 pounds, and would have been last year's cub. He should have still been with his mother. He hung around for a couple of days and then moved on.
I also got photos of porcupines, skunks and raccoons. I've never seen a raccoon here before although we have friends that have horses and have seen them coming into the barn for food.
