I was lucky enough to be able to borrow a FLIR thermal imaging camera for a night, last November. I didn’t go far, just in the bush around the house. The experience of walking just with the FLIR, without a white light, was difficult and a little unnerving at first, but after a while it became easier.
Finding and observing animals was interesting (and the goal!), but viewing trees, vegetation and other physical features was just as eye-opening. It had been a hot day and the trees were still radiating plenty of heat. Click on an image to view the slide show.
