We want to set photo cameras in the field and capture images of insects that visit flowers. We want to place these cameras above the flowers and then they should get triggered whenever an insect lands on the flower.
Is also important to find a way to distinguish if is the same insect just flying around and coming back in the next second or so (or a certain time frame). This is important because we would like to have an accurate estimation of how many unique insects visit a particular flower in a certain period of time. Sometimes an insect can create multiple false positives. That is, we can count that insect as multiple individuals, when is actually just the same individual.
I am wondering also how hard is to do this with conventional photo cameras that have incorporated motion sensors.
