Carla Rhodes is a wildlife conservation photographer who was isolated at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. She used this time to pay attention to the animals in her backyard without interfering with them

The technique - camera trapping - is explained in this Science Friday video (5m 23s) where Rhodes discusses her project it and some of the results.

Rhodes's hope is "that by getting to see animals 'on our level' we learn to love, respect, and protect the wildlife we normally see from a distance."

The video was produced by Luke Groskin, Science Friday's video producer.
