Yesterday morning.  At this point, they had already knocked down my flash on camera right, and within a couple of frames, they would knock down my fancy LIDAR (like laser) trigger system.  Too bad as the sky really lit up after this.

The flash left a little bit of a ghost image due to the sync rate – next time will go to high speed sync!  This was also with a remote camera trap.

I was having fun yesterday with some camera trap photography – this was captured with a wide-angle lens about 2 feet from the birds.  Come learn camera trapping from me!
