    this is a link to live streaming video of a watering hole in Africa...runs 24/7. you can see all sorts of animals and people coming by for water. they say best viewing is between 7 a.m. - noon Botswana time, which is between 1 a.m. - 6 a.m. here on the east coast. waching for the last few minutes, i saw something :greenpbl: stroll by and lots of bugs light up the sky. very interesting to see.

    yep, when you pause it stops the feed, then jumps to live when you resume. earlier i saw the strangest looking thing...couldn't make it out. at night the pond is illuminated. glad you guys like it.

    My question is who is running the camera. Maybe this is a conspiracy by the National Geographic society for us to sit and waste our lives away watchign animals on the other side of the world. :D

    *Is seen clapping hands at seeing elephant cross a real live "Land Bridge"*

    I looked at the title, and then quickly looked at the url (wildcam) and thought this was going to be one of those naughty cams. Its very cool, but i had different expectations ;)
