Image of the week - Flutter for the shutter!

A Black Phoebe triggers a motion-detecting camera in a remote part of the National Park Service’s Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma, California. The camera is part of a wireless network developed by the High Performance Wireless Research and Education Network (HPWREN) with funding from the National Science Foundation. HPWREN teamed with the Park Service’s California Mediterranean Research Learning Center (CMRLC) and San Diego State University’s Field Stations Program (SDSU FSP) to study natural resource impacts in the rocky intertidal area, while providing a ‘bird’s eye’ view of that area of the park to human visitors. HPWREN’s network uses solar-powered access nodes to support sensors and cameras, and relies on the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego for its Internet connections.
