I occasionally (very occasionally) get lucky with what I think is a pretty good picture of wildlife. Though Vancouver Island has a high density of cougars and black bears, the wildlife I've seen on my farm has been much less dramatic. I'm mostly limited to raccoon, rabbits, squirrels and lots of birds.

I thought it might be fun if people posted wildlife pictures they have taken on their property (or very close).

I see rabbits almost daily on my farm. Caught this guy standing around in a flower bed.

Aren’t you glad you don’t see the cougars on your farm? 😅
I was trying to look back and find the pic of a deer right up in the driveway checking out my yard fence and sniffing around that I took last year, but I couldn’t find it. We always have meadow deer, but this one wasn’t in a hurry to cross the road, just wandering around checking things over. Lol

Those are some really nice shots!
Thank you. I have an old camera that I whip out occasionally. I mostly photograph chickens (they are oddly photogenic!!), but see a decent amount of wildlife here too. Lovin’ the country life! 👩‍🌾

Here’s a few more.

Wow! All those pictures are absolutely gorgeous! I love this thread already! Unfortunately, we don’t get much wildlife activity on our property, except rabbits, birds, and the occasional deer or coyote

Very pretty pictures you guys! I never have my good camera so I don’t have any that can be made out……except for these three

The first one was a baby bunny that was trying to run into a brush pile we were burning.
The second the dog found that baby and gave to my daughter. We found the nest and put it back and kept the dog away until they were old enough to leave. And the third I didn’t even see those geese when I took the picture lol I REALLY wish I had my good camera on that one, it would have made such a pretty picture :(

All these are taken with a phone camera so not the greatest quality.

A deer (red circle) and a coyote (blue circle) we’re right next to each other on our neighbors’ property! You can’t really see the coyote in the picture but you can see him in the video I took. But you can’t post videos.

A raccoon I caught. I love to set live traps to see what I get and then let the animals go again. Unless they are a varmint that has been causing trouble…..
