I set this camera trap up on a ridge overlooking the Smoky River Valley in Alberta, Canada. I wanted to make use of the long summer days to get a well-lit daylight shot of some critter, any critter. It was a bust and I took the set down when the nights grew longer than the days. Looking through the card, I discovered this portrait of my dog Rosie setting off the trap while I adjusted the camera and laid out some trapping lure. I really like this shot. I sometimes forget what an enthusiastic, loyal companion she is. I have never had a dog so faithful and bush savvy. She wants nothing to do with predators like cougars. When we encounter one, she freezes and won't take a step further. I don’t have to worry about her picking a fight that neither she nor I will win. Squirrels, now that’s a different story…

That's awesome, and what a fantastic view, that's too bad you didn't get a day pic of a target animal, but like you said, a great pic of man and his best friend..... I love dogs too!

You're lucky to have such a great camera trapping companion! -- and that is some stunning country.

It's great to have a companion like that to go with you. Beautiful country as well.

I like it too, and you've a good looking "pup" there. My dog makes the whole experience more fun, and occasionally he tips me off to something very interesting.

Meaningful trigger shot of a camtrapper and his companion in one glorious setting.

Another photo of a handsome beast!
Some of my favorite photos of canine companions are from the traps too.

Nice pup! Good call on the gloves:) I love having a dog along to dial the light in.

Great portrait of your loyal friend and wonderful backdrop you chose for a set.
