Skunks, bears, and chipmunks: prey caught by camera trap

Chris Wemmer is a Californian, biologist, and retired Smithsonian scientist who keeps an engrossing blog, Camera Trap Codger, about the animals he photographs. His camera traps are set in the woods near water sources and other high-traffic animal zones, where the animals trigger the traps with their activity. Besides interesting photographs, Chris has a pleasant, easy-going manner as he relates tales like those about a mentor and colleague and these memory snips covering more than 50 years.
