What the heck is this thing on or very close to this trail-cam lens? It moves up and down, side to side and pulsed or breathed that lasted a little over a minute... At first thought it was some kind of a bug or insect, but there aren't any bugs moving around on a cold early January 14th morning in NE Ohio... Not to trigger the camera 5 times... Any guesses?
Guessing it's a trespasser, looks like fabric- sweater maybe?
Hmm fabric, hadn't thought of that... I was thinking maybe a deer's nose, but no deer came into view before or after...

Looks man made. I also think fabric of some kind.
Water on the lenses
Nah, it isn't water and fabric doesn't shine... It's gotta be some kind of a bug... Our average coldest day of the year is January 16th and the temperature at time of video was 20 degrees... What the heck kind of bug moves around the coldest time of year although we've had a warm spell here past few days and seen a bee flying around yesterday...

It's the strap flapping in front of the camera. The shine is from the flash.
BINGO, that's gotta be it... Thank you Aspen Ghost, it's been driving me crazy...8^)
a really grainy picture ;)
