    I have never used any trail camera, but reading your post made me wonder if either mounting your camera higher on the tree or putting a wedge under the bottom of the camera to angle the lens slightly higher so you don’t get the moving grass in the photos would be the solution. Or maybe take a gas powered weed trimmer in and whack down the grass close to the camera to eliminate it from the photos.

    you are lucky to get grass!. I have had pure black pics or grey pics then the camera stopped sending pics , signal, battery and firmware are good so apparently its a sim car or sd card issue or camera issue ... I have nothing but headaches with spypoint... its a battle to get them going then another battle to keep em going ... if someone steals it I wouldn't be upset at least

    My buddy is hunting my property this week and he set up his spy point to see what's around. Although convenient it sends him the pics instantly, picture quality is no where close to the browning cameras i use.

    I own a SPYPOINT Micro and have had it send me pictures of nothing but scenery. Small birds and rodents have also triggered the camera. I adjusted the camera to a lower sensitivity and that cleared up the problem.

    SPYPOINT cameras automatically transmit low definition, thumbnail images to the app. For $5 you can buy 50 HD images. Although low resolution images are transmitted to the app, higher resolution images are stored on the camera’s microSD card.

    The best way to get freebies is to exchange references from a buddy
    When you buy some product, enter a buddy email for referral. He gets SpyPoints which can be redeemed for some product. When he does the same you some points

    I got 3 months and unlimited and 150hd By these exchanges.Enough to cover the season [emoji3526]

    Spypoint is a complete JOKE..I had nothing but good things to say last septemeber, but right at the tim eof the rut last year cameras stopped sending pics. Then during bear season then were good again, then this year same thing, Have 4 of them set up and nothing but grief after grief. Have updated the firmware, new cards, ALl service will say is you have to have the camera when you trouble shoot with them, they dont understand, what good is a camera if you have it at your computer trouble shooting all the time,
    They are sending me a new one for one that has water damage, but its out of stock tried to convince me to upgrade and spend more money.
    SO have 4 cams, 4 plans, ching cging ching, ........cams will say 100% signal, 100% battery, bring it in and they go over things, working, take it back out works while attaching to tree but then thats it.

    Their service has gone to , camera is garbage,
    DO NOT WASTE A NICKEL ON THEM< NOT A NICKEL,

    And I am telling everyone that will listen..
    Once I receive the new camera, I will list it for sale, CHEAP .

    I am researching for new ones
