Another advantage for a low camera

Just got this picture today and it also shows the advantage of setting the trail camera low to the ground for predators. This bobcat looked right at the camera, a Sony P41 which has a good flash, and only 4 feet away. Normally the eye glare would be terrible this close, especially on a bobcat at night.

The eye glare is not bad at all on this photo as the grass in the foreground absorbed most of the flash. I aimed the camera so the animal would be just above center in the picture so the flash would not be as bright, this works for coyotes also. Have had deer and elk go through this same trail and all I get is pictures of legs, so each setup I make is for certain animals.

Wow! Now there's an excellent bobcat shot. Congratulations on that one!
