Day Break

Day break has always been one of my favorite time of the day. Not sure what triggered this sequence right at day break. I'm guessing another deer followed about the same path as the doe in the second and third pics and jumped the fence before the camera triggered. One of the big disadvantages of the Moultrie cameras is their slow trigger time.

I sure do love the pics taken in this spot! Makes me want to just sit there and watch the day come to life.

Well done as always Joe!

Daybreak....one of the most peaceful times of the day! Great photos!

Perfect time of day...everything seems to make an appearance then as if hoping no one will notice.
Good for your camera...even if it is slow. Captures the pace of the morning.

Have a great weekend.

Moultrie cams take great pics, but you are right they are a little slow. I share your feelings about daybreak; it is easily my favorite part of the day. Especially in the summer, when you hear the nocturnal creatures give way to daybreak's song.

Great shots, no matter how they came to be.

Beautiful. I love day break too. By summer, my trail cams are the only way that I get to see it because it's so early!

Slow trigger-time cams drive me bananas too! I finally figured out that my cams trigger much faster if the animal moves across the field of view (as opposed to straight at the cam). I'm sure that you already knew that.

Any idea what the trigger time is on the Moultrie, Joe? It looks like a great hunting spot.

There is something so secretive about her dissapearing to a safe haven for the day! Our duiker does the same here on the farm!

Thanks for commenting everyone. This is a great spot.

KB - I'm not sure it makes much difference with the Moultries. I generally always got the back half of any animal crossing in front of the cameras. I now try to set the cameras so the animal comes in head on to the camera.

Brian - The trigger time is between 2 and 3 seconds. But a little to Moultries defense they built their cameras to go along with their game feeders. They were building feeders long before they got in the camera business. But it's a big difference taking pics at a feeder and trying to catch an animal moving on a trail.
