I got connected just at the end when White Cloth was hiding in the bush. Didn't see much of him. The highlight for me, however, was seeing the little Owl Pieter spotted. It didn't stay long, but, boy was that ever a treat!

only got a couple of shots of the owl... it wasn't there long enough to zoom in and focus well on it!

Well we need to chip in and buy Pieter an IR filter to put over that spotlight. I was reading about this and using a spotlight (from what I've read so far) is the standard way guides "spot" night critters, because they can see the reflection of their eyes. However, the usual practice (from what I've read) is then to take their filter and place it over the spotlight to soften the light's glare, once they get a good spot on the animal.

Wonder how much the filters for spotlights cost?

About 69 US dollars :wink: Less than a dollar per slot :lol:

They had an IF spotlight and Pieter burned it up the night he and Helen got entangled with the rowdy teen ellies. We could see it smoking and finally it quit. He knew it was burning but needed it. Then he switched to the regular spot.

Martha I viewed the entire elephant recording where the spotlight was used. Pieter put his hand over the lens diffusing it about 60%. He said his hand was about "done". LOL I bet that light is HOT.
