I think raccoons like having their picture taken by trail cameras.

just changed out the SD card this morning. Here is another reason that I'm going to sit tight in the woods. Plus trail cams have the time and date on so I know what time they are around. left of the coyote are two more.

Looks like a very nice play ground.
It certainly is. The springs keep the water open in the winter so it's a hotspot for the waterfowl.
After 6 or 8 months experience, I can say that the trail cams have proven to be a lot of fun in their own right. The results have met the objectives I laid out when first acquiring them, especially documenting who has been using an area and getting a sense of their activity patterns. The info from the trail cams was very helpful in determining where and when it would be worth staking out a location and resulted in a series of fox pup photos that would have been difficult otherwise. One den had adult foxes bringing food items to the den and later I saw lots of pup activity for about a month and a half before they disappeared. On one visit to retrieve the SD card, I heard a bawling noise and found that a very young pup was outside the den. I ran back to the truck and grabbed my 7dii and got a photo before it disappeared down another entrance. Another den several miles away had occasional adult visits, but no pups were seen nor adults bringing any food to the den until about 2 months after the pups were born in the first den. Then all of a sudden, 3 older pups were seen at this second den for weeks on end. This info encouraged me to stake out the 2nd den area one morning (I live nearly 3 hours away, so it takes some effort and time to devote to it) and was rewarded by having the pups show themselves. Without the trail cam info, I could have spent many unproductive hours at the wrong den site!

I would definitely say that trail cams can improve your wildlife photography by allowing you to get to know your subject in their natural environment. As in any genre of photography, the more you know about the subject, the easier it will be for you to get successful shots. Visiting a zoo for example won't show the animals behaviour the same as it would if you viewed the same creature in it's natural habitat.
