A Week in Nature May 23-June 1, 2022
This fun video compilation was produced from a series of trail cam photographs taken in May and June 2022. It starts with a very pregnant white-tailed deer doe and ends with her newborn fawn coming onto the scene. Yes, folks, it is that time of year! Images from Fulton County, courtesy Mike Widger.

Suburban Bobcat Offers ‘Learn to Hunt’ Program
A Ring doorbell camera captured a bobcat strolling through the front lawn of a suburban lawn…but WAIT, it is a mother bobcat and she’s trailed by an inquisitive kitten learning to hunt. Images captured in Sangamon County on November 26, 2022, courtesy Tom Skelly.
