Yesterdays install was two GoPro cameras on a beaver dam.

Image

One GoPro above water and one below. They are both activated with the motion detector on the top of the pole. If everything goes right the beaver or otter will trip the motion detector and the GoPro cameras will record the animal entering the water and swimming past the camera.

Image

The setup is powered by a battery box and solar panel on the pole. The other camera trap is a Nikon D7100 and external motion detector.

Update: I saw a video from the photographer that I set this camera up for. It was really cool. An otter was on the dam and then dove in the water and swam in front of the underwater GoPro. Success!

On a trip to the Nebraska Sandhills today and tomorrow for the Platte Basin Timelapse Project. One of the installs is a pair of temporary timelapse cameras overlooking a very unusual water feature. ImageImage

This 'lake' fills and empties through a single inlet/outlet point.

Last week while David was working I was In Peru doing a little camera trapping with Jeff Cremer. Jeff is a member here and is the marketing director for Rainforest Expeditions in Peru. Here are a few images from the trip.

The Tambopata Research Center is on the Tambopata river in eastern Peru. To get there it is a long flight to Lima then a flight to Puerto Maldonado with a stop in Cusco. Then a bus ride to the river port and a four hour boat ride upstream to Refugio Amazonas. This is truly a beautiful place to stay.

While in Puerto we searched the town for some CF cards. And actually found some.

Image

The trip up the river is interesting with many opportunities to see some of the local wildlife along the bank of the river.

Image

Image

Image

Image

The accommodations are first rate.

Image

Image

Image

We checked a couple camera traps while there and installed another. The wild pigs had their way with this one and pushed it into the mud.

Image

Image

This is a Sony 4K video action camera in a weatherproof housing with built in motion detector.

Image

We stayed a couple days at Refugio Amazonas and then made out way up the river a few more hours to the Tambopata Research Center.

Image

The first camera trap checked was a couple miles from the center. A small crease in the gasket let it fill with termites.

Image

Image

But the camera still works.

Then we noticed the 3.5mm connector had been pulled out of the motion detector and bent in half.

Image

After reviewing the images on the camera we found that a jaguar had walked up to the motion detector and pulled the wire out. Jeff has the photo sequence of the vandalism. I am hoping he will post them here.

We installed a couple more traps while at the center and saw some other wildlife.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then it was time to head home.

Image

Five hour boat ride, three hour plane ride to Cusco and then to Lima. Six hour layover in Lima then on to Huston. Seven hour layover in Huston then on to Omaha and a 45 minute drive home.

All in all it was an amazing trip and I hope I can visit again someday.

I had a great time hanging out with Jeff in the jungle! He's a really nice guy and really helped me out alot. We got some great shots of Jaguars awesome shots of jaguars as well as a tapir and an Ocelot. I have an animated .gif of the jaguar pulling the cord out of the camera. You can see it here: https://twitter.com/JCremerPhoto/status/738517859945615360
