Trail camera was just a little too close

I like to set my cameras close in a location like this, sometimes at one foot from the spillway between two ponds, this would have centered the beaver had it been traveling into the pond rather than leaving. Coming out of the cool water and the fur keeping the heat in the body allowed the beaver to get past the center before triggering the camera. I moved the camera back 10 inches which should double the field of view on the camera and still get a close picture.

I wanted to get the small cottonwood tree in the mouth of the beaver as it dragged it to the lower pond, could have been a nice photo if everything had worked correctly.
