Have you ever wondered what creatures are really up to when no one is looking? Well, you’re in luck.

These trail cameras captured a whole range of animals going about their business.

Of course, some of them seemed to know they were being watched, and they took the time to say hello!

1. Air assault

Owls are predators, but this one has bitten off a bit more than it can chew.

They do, in fact, go after baby deer, but this one seems to have misjudged the size of its prey.

2. Oh, hai

Hello, trash panda!

The deer could care less, but the raccoon seems to want to know what’s going on here and why it’s being spied on.

3. Make it rain

We figured animals were up to all sorts of mischief at night, most of it involving food.

But it’s much more fun to actually see it.

4. I’m outta here

We’re never going to look at owls in quite the same way!

This deer looks like it knows the owl poses enough of a threat to make a break for it.

5. Who’s in there?

This curious little guy is cracking us up.

He’s eager to check out the trail camera, but not willing to put down his snack to really investigate.

6. Ok, then!

Huh. Well, apparently deer can get a little kinky.

Whatever floats their boat!

7. Hey, old pal!

These two look like great old friends who just happened to run into each other while out hunting for food one night.

They even look like they’re telling stories!

8. Not ready for its close-up

Don’t you wish someone would tell you when you have something caught in your teeth (or antlers) before they snap a photo.

Hopefully, this buck will never see the results.

9. The ministry of silly walks

Maybe deer walk on two legs when they think no one is looking.

We doubt it, but we’re pretty amused by the idea.

10. You’re not fooling anyone

I guess these deer thought “hey, if you’re going to be creepy and record us then we’re going to be creepy and stare back at you.”

11. Primal screams

A little choir practice, anyone?

These cuties look like they’re raising quite the ruckus and putting their whole hearts into waking up anyone nearby.

12. Here’s what I think of your camera

Well, she’s probably trying to lick the camera to see if it’s food, but we like to think she’s sticking her tongue out at the photographers.

We hope they hung this one on the wall.

13. Bear buns

Well, now we know what bears do in the woods.

We had always suspected…

14. Don’t look up

Is this just a wild party or is that raccoon trying to stay safe?

Either way, things seem to get wild at night!

15. A hand from mom

Sometimes you’re just too little to eat out of the trash can on your own.

That’s what bear parents are for.

We had no idea that animals were having so much fun without us out there!

But we have to admit that we’re kind of glad they do – and we love getting a peek at them.
