I used some birthday money to buy myself a little gadget called a “Pluto Trigger”. It attaches to my camera and I can trigger it from a distance to take photos using an app on my phone.😍 😍
Tried it out first by setting my tripod up near some of our bird feeders and then triggered it from our front room! I’m impressed with how good they are. It’s clear that the blackbird and one of the bluets heard the shutter moving and looked over to the camera.
This is what it looks like. More info on the Pluto Trigger Website.
