A Bear Comes to Camera Trap Spring
As promised, I have been trying for some scout-camera photos. Here is a little bear sequence from Wednesday, May 26.
First, a brown-phase black bear shows up at the spring (the depression at the left edge of the photo).
When I came to pick up the camera this morning, I noticed that it looked a little cock-eyed. Sure enough, the bear had noticed the camera and had come to investigate.
The bear brushed up against the camera, leaving some mud on the case. You can see that the camera is tilted away from horizontal.
Eventually the bear went on its way.
My equipment is not the greatest, but camera-trapping is fun, and I will have some more photos soon.
