Here you’ll find some photos taken during the course of fieldwork and depicting life in the field. Fieldwork Fieldwork is full of fun and challenges. Here are some photos of fieldwork and fieldplay. Camera traps Camera traps are heat- and motion-activated cameras commonly used in wildlife research. Once they are set up, they take photos whenever an animal passes within the triggering radius. This produces some amazing and sometimes humorous wildlife "selfies". The photos in this album are taken straight from the camera - no editing or enhancement needed!
