Thanks - some good ideas there. The camera battery was fully charged plus there is a battery pack. No chance any person went there - remote and inaccessible. Animal interference would have been obvious.

We have trailcams but we need to watch an area about 40 metres up the tree. So we are improvising ++

Hi all - I'm part of a citizen science group currently focussing on owls (Tasmanian Masked Owl). What we are trying to do is to taken regular shots from just before dusk through to just after dawn. The camera is aimed at a tree with likely nesting hollows. We are trying to learn if a breeding pair are using hollows in a tree. Image quality is secondary in this exercise.
In our first attempt we set up the camera to commence taking shots every minute from 6pm. Autofocus was off. P mode selected. The camera took about 30 good shots, then about 60 black frames, then stopped altogether.
We plan to do some more trial runs, next with high ISO and slow shutter speed NR turned off. The camera is a K5 that is in good condition but now largely retired.
While we can try dummy runs at home, or just outside, for the actual observation it is not feasible for the camera to be accompanied, and this would potentially spook the owls anyway.
Any help much appreciated - if the owls (known to be around this spot) are using this tree than this patch of forest might be saved from being felled in an unwelcome infrastructure development. Thank you, Ian

This is a wonderful shot from a region now firmly locked into my bucket list. I see no need for cropping. I like the use of a small aperture to allow the sunburst.
