We have a pair of geese that returned this year. They are beautiful swimming around our pond. This year they have six eggs. Last weekend I set up a game-cam to watch their nest.

So last night the game-cam captured a neat moment.

It looks like Mother Goose was sitting on the nest of eggs at 3AM and she suddenly heard a bird of prey come flying in close. I assume Mother Goose thought the bird was coming after her eggs, but it appears the bird of prey was coming in to to grab a small animal. You can see the eyes of the small animal the bird is after.

Cool pic Zep!

Any guesses on the small animal that is the target?

Thanks FishinRod. Gosh I don't know. Those eyes look a bit odd. Maybe an Opossum? I wish it were otter eyes!

I was worried it was possibly a small cat.

Looking again, it could be a rabbit that has just flattened his ears.

Of course, it could be a critter spinning away from danger and the camera captured an odd, altered pic.

I have had some head-scratchers on my cameras. I do like it when a later pic resolves the mystery. (My wife is not a big fan of "mystery" pics, because she prefers that we do not have any chupacabras at the farm!)
