1) Next time, I'll try to find a log that crosses higher above the ground. In this case, with the camera only about 3' off the ground, the field of vision is very limited. I had many photos that showed only half a squirrel or half a raccoon.
2) Trail cams are triggered by movement. Water trickling down a ravine is movement. I had over a hundred photos that showed nothing but the creek and leaves, as the water itself was enough to cause the cam to take photos.
In any case, here are a couple of photos that DID work.
