Sunflower Timelapse


(click here to view the timelapse file)

Well I thought all was fine and dandy like cotton candy with the cam and computer, when I powered everything down at 7 a.m. this morning. But instead of some 20 hours of timelapse footage, unbeknownst to me the set-up crapped out after only 2.5 hours — which is probably for the better. One minute and 44 seconds of a bees busy on a bobbing flower is a better bite than 10 times that amount. Enjoy. And be sure to pay attention to the way the bees work around the flower.

PS. I’ll also be tossing it up on YouTube later.

UPDATE (8.4): After several failed attempts with YouTube’s balky rejecting upload function, success was finally achieved and the YouTube version is viewable here.

Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
