At various time I have had three trail cams for the backyard. One died some time back, and then I lost track of things (too busy!) and left one out in the yard for a few months, and ants got in to it. It's dead too now, and it was "the good one" that took nice color pictures with a flash.
This is my last working camera, and it just takes infrared, which is not what I really want.
Time to order another color camera. Sigh.
