October check 2016

Between August and October cameras were set up in a few more of the reserves. Thus, there were a lot more pictures to go through, and deciding the best pictures to share was a much harder process. Some of the cameras had a quiet month while others proved that there may just be highways in the bush, with some cameras taking up to 100 pictures.

This sequence of photos shows that camera trapping isn’t all plain sailing. An elephant broke a branch from the tree above the camera and left it dangling in front of the camera. This resulting in a lot of overexposed photos from the flash and who knows what the motion sensors failed to detect.
