I set this camera hoping to catch bears using this puddle as a muddy bath tub and the black bear pictured did just that a few hours after I set it. When I checked it I also lowered the camera to capture more of the puddle.
This camera has been here for a few years and has been my best spot in this area, I usually set cameras in loose clusters of 3-5.
I took this camera home, the location is good but after trying it from 3 different angles I couldn’t find one that gave me good pictures. I could have solved that problem by switching to video because in video mode these cameras will adjust to the conditions within a second or two.
I pulled this camera also. The spot was good but also caught pictures of people so I didn’t want to risk having a thief walk past.
This is a new spot, it’s doing really well but also has challenging lighting, I’m going to switch cameras and set it to video next visit.

Very cool! The eagle drinking from the river is pretty awesome.
