creature camera

I had forgotten the pleasure of making composite images with the trail camera, even when the result is not quite up to National Geographic standards, to say the least! The good thing about the trail camera, besides being always ready to take a picture, is that it doesn’t move. The acorn woodpecker, flicker, and western tanager are each shown about where they were captured in the original frame. Since the photos were taken on different days and at different times of day, the light is also different, which explains most of the obvious compositions. This is less of a problem with night images since they are standardized by the use of a flash.

When I Was up there Friday, I was thinking whether to put my camera somewhere else before the rain comes. If it rains enough, this pool will become obsolete. But I’m curious to see the “before and after” scene, so I decided to keep the camera at the pool but move it to higher ground, where I could tether it to a tree. With a bit of luck, the rain will cause make this swimming pool obsolete, and next week I’ll want to put the camera somewhere else.
