We keep a pile of clam and oyster shells behind our compost set-up, and it’s a big attraction for local varmints. About a week ago, we tossed out a particularly smelly pile of shells, many with adductor muscles or bits of body attached to them. I thought this would be a good opportunity to catch our visitors in the act, so I set up the VarmintCam.
Over the course of four days, the camera snapped 824 pictures, making our compost pile, I’m sure, the most photographed on the planet. Here’s what came to visit.
