Mice in the garden filmed using a close up lens

I recently received a 250mm lens for my Bushnell trail camera. This is a close up lens that can be used for filming things like birds and mice.

Out in the garden I put some mixed seed on a log and very quickly a Wood mouse appeared.

I am really pleased with the results, I just need a little bit of work on where to position the trail camera as there is only a small area to play with when using such a close up lens.

    Do you remember where you got your 250mm lens for your Bushnell Trail cam? I bought the latest version and it had a 460mm and a 600mm, but I’d like to get a 250mm as well. Thanks!
