Nice! Have you tried working in the human landscape part of this spot? I've been messing around in the backyard and I love how you can do more stuff with lighting, stuff that might look funny in a forest.

I have considered some shots along a nearby chain link fence with a hole in it. There are also some stacked pallets and decommissioned loaders that could make for interesting compositions.

2 years ago, we had a cougar that was living in the landfill. It often prowled through the stacks of discarded televisions. It was only after the cougar had left, that I recognize the opportunity for a truly unique shot. It sometimes doesn't pay to be stuck with the same old mindset of keeping nature in nature.

A prime example of a picture that illustrates that point to a tee was from a few years back. JonnyA posted a pic of a Bear inside an old abandoned and funky looking rusted pickup truck.

Definitely... wildlife's adaptation to developed environments creates great opportunities for creative (often overlooked) compositions. Here are a few "farm shots" that were fun. These were all captured in abandoned buildings occupied by critters.

Love it. Br'er Possum's looking for the canned peaches. BTW, a few years ago a gray climbed into my old 1980 Toyota pickup through the rear window and left a few fox cookies on the seat. It never occurred to me (until then) to set a camera there, but I didn't pursue it.
