Been watching antelope on it this morning. Pretty neat.

Really cool! Sound too - I think what I heard croaking were frogs and they were really persistent and very loud.

Thanks GreasyTech!

So far I've seen antelope, monkeys, and rabbits.

The frogs are quite loud now. Sounds like my place at night in the summer.

I don't know what time sunrise is there, but I'd bet the old watering hole gets busy about that time. I'm going to try to look in at about 11 pm, since it looks like they're 6 hours ahead, to see what's happening.

Very cool GT!

Well, if the sounds on that site are actual real-time sounds, the birds are waking up. Can the four-legged critters be far behind???

Interesting~

Was just watching, and a shadow was approaching the water from the left... it was a MAN! The camera immediately moved to the FAR right... didn't see him again, then an engine started... now a vehicle is back, a door opened & shut... and then, another engine starting~

HUMAN action... humm... maybe a while until more wildlife returns...

Wonder when it's the most 'active' there... maybe while I'm sleeping...?

Last night as I was awaiting sunrise at the watering hole, a small animal kept approaching the water from the far side of the picture. I couldn't tell what it was. Then, when I was reading GS in another window, I heard the sound of something lapping up water so I quickly jumped back to that window.

The camera panned right and zoomed in to the right side of the watering hole, and I could see my critter close up, getting a drink. I could even hear it cough the way my EmmaDog does when she drinks too fast. It looked like a large fox. Same shape, same tail, etc., but larger than the foxes I've seen around here.

Very cool. Alas, I was too tired to make it to sunrise, but I still think that would be fascinating to watch.

So what's the first thing I think when I wake up this morning?

So far I've seen a wildebeast and had a really close view of a zebra. I'm hooked!

A la, I hope your kids were up early enough and got to see the herd of about 30 zebras at the watering hole. They zoomed the camera up so close you felt you could reach out and touch them on the nose. I wish I had a little kid here, so I could watch his/her reaction to seeing these creatures in their natural habitat.

The zebra were cool this morning.

Look's like it's focused on a couple antelope now.

Still waiting for a lion to jump out and scarf one up.

Trust me, that thought has occurred to me. *shudder*

Some monkeys frolicking about... and a lump on the ground, which appears to be a dead animal, continues to get their attention...

The action continues to pick up... darn if I know the names of all these animals... facinating!

Never thought I'd be glued to the screen to watch birds picking mites out of the ear of an antelope..... :biglaugh:

Thanks, Greasy Tech, for providing yet another addiction. The sounds themselves make great background noise.

I hope that's not a dead animal.....

The animal there now hasn't gone hungry. :)

What is that thing? And were you just laughing out loud? :biglaugh:

Interesting how that last animal to start drinking didn't figure it out like 2 others and go on either side, instead it looked till it found an opening in the group.

OMG how do you walk away from here? :blink:

That was wild! I hope one of you caught that, the direct stare down that even followed the camera. Freaky!

Okay, I am backing away now. Enjoy ya'll (which includes Ala :wink2: bye)

Wavelit TV also has a hummingbird feeder, and for a birdbrain such as myself that's neat.

They have a premium service at $3.95 a month. Looks like a good deal.

Nice place to visit.
