When we arrived back in the States and had a chance to view all the images and we saw some interesting items worth sharing. Before our cameras were activated by Instant Wild, we received our first image outside of Costa Rica as shortly after we landed in Miami.
It is a Green Iguana, but check out the below video from the companion camera nearby, seconds before it stopped in front of the Spartan cam.(maximize screen)
This camera was triggered 362 times and recorded 724 images to the card. We think that we received around 300 images via Instant Wild. The images not received were likely due to lack of cellular network availability.
We'll try to unravel a few mysteries by showing images from companion cameras and companion images.
On Valentines Day this image of a Tayra came through:
This image led some to think that we had a well fed black labrador roaming the property...
This tail led us to much speculation as well:
So did history repeat itself when this image came through?
These ocelot images were never transmitted(far left edge):
We saw one Capuchin monkey on this camera, however here is the companion image.
The other camera at Tres Hermanas was triggered 287 times and generated 574 images.

The next series of shots were either missed or completely unidentified.

Recently, our Tre Hermanas camera has failed. We inexplicably ran through a set of lithium batteries in 10 weeks, then another set in 10 days. This is a sign of either bad batteries or camera failure(which we expect that it is), so we don't expect to have it back up until our visit next month.
On our next visit, we hope to add one more wireless camera and update the firmware to help with image quality.
