Thanks to one of the regulars over at a UE Photography website I belong to (Opacity), I've now become addicted to watching a couple of live cameras in a park in Africa. So far I've watched all kinds of birds big and small, zebras, warthogs, a leopard, giraffes, a rhino, antelopes, wildebeasts, baboons and a big ol' uglee worm that is as big around as a snake. (bleh!!) I have yet to see any of my favourites, the "ellyphants" but hopefully I will soon.

Even when there are no animals in sight at either watering hole, the sounds alone are addicting so many of us. As soon as the sky begins to lighten at dawn, birds of all variety sing and chirp like crazy. And at dark (they are 8 hours ahead of me over there) the cricket/frog sounds are so soothing.

If you'd like to check this fabulous place out, go to AFRICAM and sit back to enjoy.

It's sometimes frustrating (if you really get into this) to try keeping tabs on both spots, so I keep them both up simultaneously by just minimizing both windows and dragging them side by side. You will notice that there isn't as much animal action at night, although off and on a lone animal will walk up for a drink in the dark too. At night, the cameras are trained on the waterholes and don't pan or zoom at all, not until daybreak.

The most fun for me is watching the baby baboons jump all over each other and play. It had me laughing so hard I almost peed myself. LOL

Check it out, and if you do I hope you enjoy it as much as I (and many others) do!

Hope your week is going well, and your upcoming weekend is restful. Take good care of each other!

Love Jude
