I have been trying to photograph this Beaver for almost 3 months now. Some times I have had my Scouting Cameras pointed at his lodge. At other times I have focused on a tree that the Beaver was working to take down. On several occasions there has been ample evidence that the Beaver was in front of my cameras for an extended period of time. Unfortunately, each time the cameras failed to trigger.
After this last set of photographs, I am more convinced than ever that the Beaver is somehow able to defeat the motion detectors on my camera.
In these pictures you can see the addition of fresh mud to the Beaver’s ever growing lodge. The mud was added over the course of a single night, which means the Beaver was definitely in front of the camera on at least three separate occasions. Still, no pictures were recorded.
It looks like I’m going to have to take another tack if I am ever going to get photographs of this Beaver.
