Cameras set low and close

Have some health issues that have prevented me from getting my cameras back out, so will use some older photos for a while, plus add tips on how I use my cameras.

I enjoy getting photos of birds and predators, but my first pictures were too far from the animal. After years of setting out the cameras and learning their habits, I worked my cameras closer. In this photo of a Red Tail hawk, I placed a small log for the bird to land on and just behind the camera is a small creek. Lots of mice and other small animals in this area to attract birds. Sometimes it takes several weeks or a month to get any photos but worth the time.

I hope your health issues turn out well and you get back out in the woods soon.
