I've still got two or three more St. Patrick's Day type stitches I'd like to get done.  I very much like this PS stitch "March".  It only uses two colors - to very good effect. For those interested, I do have an April stitching theme in mind - birds!

Another month has gone by, and that means it is time to share the best of our Trail Camera photos. 

During the month of March, we got several 'action' shots of jumping or running deer.  

Lots of deer hanging around.

Another action shot.

Three deer.

Five deer.

These photos are from Camera #2. I think the focus is soft and needs adjusting.


We did not manage any good photos of a bobcat this month.

Looking at the tail, it's a bobcat.

An oppossum

A raccoon

A group of turkeys strolled by.

This is the angle from camera #1.

Camera #2 did a better job of capturing the birds.

Near the end of the month, look who is crossing the creek.
See that long tail?

At 11:20am it's a cougar!

Yep a cougar!

What an amazing animal!

Wow, the cougar is beautiful!

I'm really enjoying your March stitches!

I see why you enjoyed that shamrock stitch; what a nice addition to your March collection. I'm always intrigued by the night camera photos, but also always glad those animals are near your home and not mine!

I definitely have to get me one of those cameras! I am amazed at what you have been able to capture on film. The shamrock is so precious. What a great project.

Wow! You certainly see a lot of wildlife in your area.
I'm loving your blog header which has some pretty Spring stitching and your St Patrick's Day finish is just lovely. Love anything and everything by the Prairie Schooler.

Love the capture of the prancing deer, turkeys and cougar! And your stitching banner is such a lovely assortment this month.

Oh, my, a cougar!! What a great shot of him...

Love your PS finish, one I've done, too and just put away now that March is over. You just can't go wrong with Prairie Schooler :)

I always enjoy the trail photos! That cougar is an amazing animal! It's wonderful to see what is roaming around in the woods.

I've also stitched that Prairie Schooler! It is such a happy shamrock! You will have MANY St. Patrick pieces now--I think you'll need a tree for them next year!!!
I always love your trail cam! And that cougar is divine!!

Nice PS shamrocks piece... It is sort of scary there are wild cats like Bobcats and Cougars roaming the back twenty!! But those are great pictures!
