A lot of people have been asking about my camera trap setup, and how I’m able to get the animals to face me.  We here are some photos.  I built a temporary wall to not only protect my camera, but to limit access to the water hole.  My camera is in the wood box, and I have wireless flashes in the two plastic containers.

This is the view from the other side showing the water hole.  On the left you can see my trigger which here I’m using a Cognisys Sabre which has a very sophisticated LIDAR (like laser) system.   If you want to learn more, I’m offering an ongoing workshop where I cover many of the aspects of camera trapping, and then we set your camera up for the night.  You should come away with something as we have multiple visit to the water hole each night. Last weekend I had a guest come away with two gray fox and a full moon in the same frame!  For more information:  Camera trapping photo workshop.
