Camera trap

 

Building a camera trap was an idea I had been thinking about for many years, and one day in late 2012 I decided to turn my old DSLR into one. It was something I did mostly for fun, and the main idea behind this was just to see how much is happening in the woods when we're not there.

 

There was a hiatus in this project because camera trapping was illegal in Sweden, but a change in the law has been made, so I revived this project.
