New Smithsonian database of wildlife photos captured with automated cameras

The Smithsonian today launched a new searchable website,, that presents more than 202,000 wildlife photos taken with camera traps--automated cameras with motion sensors. These images "record the diversity and very often the behavior of animals around the world." Launch announcement here.

  1. It is a photo gallery, the year is 2011, therefore flash is required. Obviously. Beautiful picture by the way.

  2. They should include a few random photos of people caught on camera shoplifting, surprised at birthday parties, or otherwise caught on camera by surprise. File them under apes.

  3. This is the first of your photographs that I have looked at and if this is a sample of the quality, I am extremely happy to have the privilege of viewing them.

    Thank you so much!
