But in this case, cameras were positioned in a drive way and a motion detector was rigged up to take photos of any movement of anything under 3 feet. And sure enough, at sunset a garden gnome appeared. He seemed to be surveying what looked to appear to be Halloween decorations in a neighbors yard. It looks like his mode of transportation is a Red Rider wagon. I could not tell by his age as he appears to have a young face but a full white beard. I wonder if they can talk and what that language is. What food do they eat and what do their houses look like? I was not able to get a lot of "face" shots, as I wonder if they don't like to be photographed or he was too busy or didn't know the camera was set up.
But I now have proof that they do move about and not stand in one place.
It looks like a food group that the garden gnomes eat is a red licorice.
