Thanks fellas, here's one of him looking off to the side. He stood there for 5 minutes and posed for quite a few pics.
He's probably thinking "How can I get over there and chew up that camera?!?"

I tried a video cam at first (see screen shot) but the one tree is either too close or the other trees are too far away. Then I installed my Sony Nex3n with a Sigma 30mm. 2.8 set to 125th @ 800 ISO. I also have a remote baby slave flash set above the cam. Then for any animals coming up from below I set up a remote driveway motion sensor aimed at the bottom part of the frame to wake and trigger the cam. Hopefully capturing a Cougar making a gentle leap up to the rock ledge.

The camera control board, remote slave flash control board and the hacked driveway motion sensor are all from Ralph Davis. I didn't have the stereo plug pushed all the way on the flash transmitter for the Bear pic. So the fill flash didn't go off which would have highlighted the Bear's shiny fur and would have had enough light to give his body more details.

That is quite a setup must have taken an hour or so to attach equipment etc. and probably days "nutting it out? Sometimes friends are with me when I set up a camera they remark you go to all that trouble for a maybe photo? They just don't get it do they? lol :rofll

Thanks Cliff,
I've always had concerns about my computer monitor rendering my pictures too dark when I view them. Anyhow, I guess I'll have to wait and find out if my 1.5v baby slave will overexpose the scenery for me, I'll be sure to keep you posted.

I know exactly what you mean Trev. I've probably got about 2-3 hours into this set thus far which includes 4 relocation's and 2 different cameras. I'm really happy with this location and camera, at least it's safe up there.
