While we might not all be lucky enough to have bears and bobcats in our backyard, it’s super easy to capture footage of your own local wildlife. All you need to do is invest in one of the best trail cameras, pick a suitable spot in your garden and then simply sit back and wait. The beauty of trail cameras is that they completely remove the human element from wildlife photography and videography. Even the most experienced wildlife photographer runs the risk of encroaching on their subject’s space and affecting their behavior.
And the fact that you don’t need a pro-level camera and telephoto lens to capture amazing footage of local wildlife – is also proved by a YouTube video. The video shows an incredible mixture of animals crossing a log bridge in Pennsylvania. Captured by local man Robert Bush using a camera trap, wildlife including bears, bobcats, grouse, beavers, and more used a fallen log to traverse the terrain. In addition, Bush runs a Facebook Page and YouTube Channel Bob’s Pennsylvania Wildlife Camera, where he posts all of his footage as it’s captured.
Hence, you can find Robert’s video below which shows animals that crossed the bridge over the course of one year. This is a natural habitat of all these species, and it’s fascinating just how many of them there are. In the meantime, check out more of Robert Bush’s incredible wildlife footage here. It’s all about wildlife and if you enjoy wildlife photography and films, I’m sure you’ll love it!
#1 A camera set up in Pennsylvania has produced amazing footage of local wildlife, including bears, bobcats, beavers & more
This amazing video was created using a trail camera over the course of a year. It seems that Robert Bush was able to cannily predict that the fallen log would provide a ‘choke point’ for land-based wildlife to be able to cross the river.
