Building a Better Mousetrap with Peanuts and Flash Guns


I spotted this delightful Better Mouse Trap article over at the Strobist blog. The gist of the story is a pesky mouse had been busy tormenting the designer of a range of high-end remote flash gun triggers. Being of the engineering persuasion he sets out to a) test some equipment, b) snap some pics of the critter in the act and finally c) catch the critter. Best of all, unlike squirrel-a-pault it does have a happy ending.


Imagine that you are a mouse — an “outdoor” mouse. Specifically, you are the mouse pictured in mid-air, at left. You live in chilly northeast of the US, and it is winter time. So, naturally, you might try your luck at becoming an indoor mouse for the winter. Except that you happen to live next to the wrong house.
