The following photos were taken by a camera set up on the edge of the cemetery grounds near Amherst Town conservation land by Todd K. Fuller, Professor in the Department of Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts. Can you identify the different animals they caught in the act of resting, hunting for food, grooming, babysitting, flying, jumping and going about their business day and night? If you click on the first photo, the series turns into a slide show. Thank you Prof. Fuller for sharing the photos.
