1379Motion activating cameras for monitoring foraging times of cavity-nesting bees

      Hi Everyone,

      Can anyone recommend a small, outdoor motion-activating camera able to
      capture images (with timestamps) of foraging cavity-nesting bees and
      wasps leaving and returning to their nest. Being able to mount the
      camera on the nestbox would be most desirable. Any experiences with
      cameras to quantify this activity, useful links or websites of cameras
      would be much appreciated. It seems most outdoor motion-sensing
      cameras are large, and used for bird and mammal detection in a larger
      spatial area, whereas I clearly require a camera that detects motion
      within a much smaller space (e.g. several cubic inches around a
      nestbox gallery hole).

      Has anyone had experience using these cameras?:

      Thank you very much,
