Slash Pond Otter.

 I photographed an otter one evening last week, in the Slash Pond, whilst scanning a raft of lilly pads with my 150 – 500mm lens. It popped up as I panned my camera, and dropped back into the water as soon as I pressed the shutter; it was an automatic reaction shot.

The mink, the rabbit, and the shrew (camera trapped).

This image was captured in the flooded withy wood.

The camera trap was setup on a well used track and its infrared flash covered in a double thickness of women’s tights. The proximity sensor was part covered on two sides with tape to narrow its field of sensitivity.

I don’t know what happened next, but I doubt it was good news for the rabbit.

Busman’s Holiday.

I have just returned from my annual week’s holiday on the edge of the Slash Pond Reserve in Broad Haven.

Living Otter Holt Mink.

This image was camera trapped outside the living otter holt; again, using my wife’s tights to control the flash intensity.

As you will probably have gathered, I am sorting camera trap images. I have received emails asking for more camera trap images. I will setup a gallery shortly, to satisfy those that crave them.
