Background

My father had this bird bath which I put in the back yard and was filling by hand, but that got old so added a hose bib irrigation timer to top up the bird bath and the 5 gallon bucket each morning.  The only problems have been a burst 1/2" irrigation tube from a winter freeze and the batteries dieing in the timer after over a year.

A new addition is a game camera to see who's using the water.

When I came into the studio to take this photo all
 the studio strobe lights fired, then again, then again.
The EZ-Cam way taking my photo,
but they were all way overexposed.
On the right side (about the same level as the flash tube)
a mini USB socket that's used to download the photos.

The first try has a lot of color distortion because the Sun
is getting into the lens.

The shot of the bird was cropped so the date time stamp is missing.

But the night shot of a deer also has bad color,
so maybe it's the camera?
