Time Lapse Function on Mobiles

Just had a little fun with the old time lapse function on my phone. Fortunate enough to have a tripod and a doofer to hold my phones camera over the eye piece of a viewing scope. Simply aimed it at the fence and got some rather good images (from a distance of about 18ft) of Starlings and a regular visiting wood pigeon we call Dustin, at our neighbours feeders.

In good weather next summer, without the threat of rain, this should make a useful addition to the kit needed to capture some better images of wildlife in action, especially those hard to sneak up on species (just don’t point it at the neighbours window!)

Reasonably cheap equipment if you discount the viewing scope (which I was fortunate to be gifted), although they are not as expensive as they once were. However you don’t necessarily need the scope, we tracked Curtis the Comma Butterflies progress and ultimate demise using just the tripod, phone holder and phone (see Article 4 on Article page).
