This video is from a couple weeks ago when it was a really January. The near zero temperature was great for camera work but not so great for my toes. I have bike riding the last few days pretending it is March. Who needs to go south in the winter with weather like this?
Technical: sequences shot on two successive mornings

I have been camera trapping for several years, each year refining my technique a little bit. Last year I concentrated on better staging using a level and placing the camera with a good background (stage) for the animals. After using different techniques over the years there seems to be no need for attractants and scent blockers, either the set is in a good location or it is not. My thanks goes to the MN DNR, Scientific and Natural Areas Program, for permission to put these cameras on public land.

I have a tendency to look for patterns and designs in nature, especially when shooting macro subjects. I caught myself doing the same thing last week when shooting ducks. Maybe there is something to the saying, "It's hard to teach an old dog new tricks."
