I spent a few hours last night with Bill Forbes, the inventor of the PhotoTrap, at his property at the base of Elephant Head near Amado, AZ. Bill gave me a private lesson on how to use the PhotoTrap and how to set up shots like the one above. We sat in lawn chairs and visited while bats zoomed all around us and the PhotoTrap did all the work.


I take possession of my PhotoTrap next week.


Bill's pet turkey spent the evening on top of my truck.

Sacred Datura

Five hour time lapse of Sacred Datura night blooming in my backyard.


The flash at the end of the video is a sphinx moth.
