Not a "camera trap" in the true sense of the word but thought I'd share it with you guys anyways. After almost a week of trying I was finally able to capture some elephants drinking at one of the windpumps using my GoPro. I made use of my head strap mount attached to a brick. After placing my setup right at the pump's outlet I set the GoPro to shoot at a 5 second interval and then waited for the elephants to arrive. This was the outcome...

Thanks Bailey, glad you enjoyed it. I must say, I did consider the fact that they might destroy the camera and I honestly just worried about the SD card. As long as I got some decent shots I thought it was worth the risk.  :thumleft:

Thanks Offshore. I see the video already has 500 views after just 4 days. Not exactly what I would call a viral video but I'm quite chuffed.  ;D

Hell Offshore
What area is that?
Thought the WC had lots of rain
We were also looking pretty bad in the EC until last 2 weeks
and then a fantastic 100 mm
Looking good here now

Frankmac I really hope so. We normally get our first Rain on President Paul Krugers Birthday, the 10th of October. ;D
Lakey, the Farm is in Limpopo between Pietersburg and Tzaneen in the Wolkberg , however in Oudtshoorn we had very little so far, less than 100 mm this Season.
