Views from within

The whitefooted mouse came and went most of the night, but just before dawn a raccoon made its appearance.

It went all the way to the end and ate the smoked herring. I got twenty butt shots.

Then it turned around, but the camera was too slow for a mugshot.

I believe these guys have a powerful thirst today. That smoked herring is heavily salted.

LOL! That's great! Looks like you'll just have to rearrange the bait and the camera. :-D

Yeah, I reversed the position of camera and bait last night, and will check it in a few minutes. Thanks.

Fantastic shots!

Great blog. I added it to my list of links on living with Bird Dogs - www.Wenaha,blospot.com.

Hi, I am not sure how this works but would like to ask for your help. I am an Irishman working on a book on Spanish wildlife and need to know more about how to make, set, and service camera traps. In fact the setting wont be too much of a problem as I used to trap about a thousand years ago in my boyhood but I really need help with triggers, etc. Most technology goes over my head and I don't really understand the indentity bit below, so I will include my email address, james1045hotmail.com , and hope you can contact me.
Many thank,
James Connolly
