Don Osborne sent this picture of a squirrel, along with the owl shot featured as today’s Picture of the Day.

Steve White of Vermont sent us this picture of two bucks from last September. He writes, “Thought you might find this shot taken on my trail cam back in September of interest. I’m betting that these guys are twins since they are so buddy-buddy.”

And last but certainly not least is this from Jean King in Fulton County. Writes King: “The trail camera in my family causes a lot of excitement to see what has been recorded. Even the lady at the photo lab was amazed! Jeff Keefauver’s comment ... “Either that’s Mom or we have a problem.”
