Mink adapting to camera
This was a test to learn more about how mink react to a camera and to accept something new to there environment.
I set the camera up on rods in the open and left it turned off, then hid another camera in the weeds and covered it with moss. The mink did just as predicted by checking out the visible camera and not noticing the 2nd hidden camera. It wasn't bothered by the flash and after a few weeks I could place a camera anywhere and get good pictures.
The hardest problem was keeping the camera lens dry with all the rain and so close to a creek.
