A javelina capture last night near our RV with a camera trap and three flashes.
A Scott’s Oriole on a tree outside our RV a few minutes ago. Guests have reported seeing three Bullock’s orioles this week – the migrants are definitely beginning to pass through!
A gray fox emerges from a trail it often uses as it approaches our waterhole. Captured last night with a camera trap.
This was captured the same night as the gila monster – just to show I can focus! 🙂
Yesterday with my camera trap! The problem with being just two feet from your subject is the limited depth of field. I typically focus right at the water’s edge as that is where the wildlife stops usually pauses, but unfortunately the gila monter headed right into the water! So close to being a cool photo, but another near miss.
First time in some time that we haven’t had guests out here at the Desert Photo Retreat – that is a good thing, I’m definitely not complaining! So last night I went down to the lower blind and had some fun with the birds! Also set up a camera trap, but unfortunately messed up focus so won’t be showing those photos. 🙂 It is so easy to bump the lens.
Doing a little scouting today at the Colossal Caverns, and was greeted by a pack of Coatimundis! This is one of many places we will be visiting on my Arizona Photo Tour in April in which I surprisingly still have two spots left! I think it is going to be a really fun trip, here is more information on my Arizona Photo Workshop. Hopefully the Coati will still be around!
A little night sky scouting Wednesday night as I get ready for my night photography workshop this weekend!
