Snakes

I just happened to look out my editing bay window but what do I see but two snakes tangled up in the bush that is in front of my window. Looks like they are mating as best I can tell per google. Filmed a little bit which I will throw up here if any of it came out, its just getting dark its it was hard to see them. Kinda made me think about all those national geo videos I had to sit through in middle school science. Then I realized how much it must have sucked to sit there for hours waiting for one shot....

*I meant this for the UWOL forum, not UWOL Contest... sorry

Cheers, still waiting on my other work to finish rendering, probably wont be able to load the footage till tomorrow. Not sure if anyone wants to see it though. I originally was just surprised to see a snake in my window. Didnt realize there was two and what they might have been up to until I was all ready rolling.

But that's the challenge of filming wildlife - you never quite know what might happen, when it might happen, or whether it's what think is happening. But the longer you spend sitting there, waiting for something to happen, the more likely you are to record it (and the more likely the animals are to do it just when need to do something else!).
I filmed some guillemots (common murres) a few years ago - they were posing nicely and two came rather close, apparently investigating a potential nest site. I zoomed in on their heads for some mugshots, and suddenly realised they were mating, so had to zoom out again to get the action!
