Last year, I was running a camera trapping project up in Norrbotten. One of the sites close to Lainio was frequented a lot by #reindeer. This is the perfect time to see small calves like this very white one! @_SLU #CameraTrapTuesday #Scandcam pic.twitter.com/RTd86OPd6m

Last year a curious cat visited one of my camera traps. I placed it on a small trail halfway down a cliff as months of staring at tracking data told me that that was what lynx select for. It worked as this was the only animal passing in three months time! #CameraTrapTuesday @_SLU pic.twitter.com/GjNT01BR4d

Slowly but steadily everything is waking up in northern Sweden. The moose are migrating towards their summer range encountering some cameras on the way. #CameraTrapTuesday @_SLU #Scandcam pic.twitter.com/WQeMECVIr7

And finally, a red deer investigates.
You wonder what this mountain hare was thinking when it was overlooking its home. The nice thing with the midnight sun in northern Sweden is that we get colour images even in the middle of the night (this picture was taken around 2am). #CameraTrapTuesday #Scandcam @_SLU pic.twitter.com/Py2nM5NkhS

Here is a badger nosing its way through a patch of new growth on top of forest which was burnt out last year.
The days are becoming very long here in the North, which means that we get colour pictures throughout the day. Here a #badger foraging in a previously burned forest site. #CameraTrapTuesday @_SLU #Scandcam pic.twitter.com/bznerJg5fH

Here's a hare enjoying the spring.
All the snow is gone and it feels like summer with temperatures +20 degrees Celsius. However, the #mountainhares are still moulting to their summer coat leaving them exposed to predators. #camouflagemismatch #CameraTrapTuesday @_SLU @NINAforskning #Scandcam pic.twitter.com/HuNruGtJZD

And here is a lynx.
A couple of days ago we went down a very steep hill towards a wildlife trail regularly use by lynx. I wonder if roe deer dare to walk there! #Scandcam studying predator-prey interactions in Hedmark @NINAforskning @_SLU @gaupejohn #CameraTrapTuesday pic.twitter.com/ToR9tQKqO1
