Animal Photos Taken with a Trail Camera

All photos on this page were taken with a digital trail camera. The animals trigger the shutter when they walk past the camera, which is mounted on a tree.

This is how the trail camera is set up in the woods. It is mounted to a tree in an area where there is a lot of animal sign. The metal box deters vandalism and theft. The camera has a motion detector switch that snaps photos of the animals when they walk past it.
