Kelly McFall shared game camera footage of the wildlife that visits a water station at an undisclosed location in the Aguanga area.

Bobcats, coyotes, deer, birds and more come to quench their thirst at the watering hole amid the ribbonwood trees and sage.

The images were captured with a motion detector game camera so as not to disturb the animals as they drank, played and rested undisturbed.

The pictures were shared on the Facebook group for Lake Riverside Friends and resulted in an active conversation about local wildlife.
