Today the Department of Awesomely Good Deeds salutes John Wells, an alternative energy and sustainability researcher located in the desert area of Terlingua in SW Texas. John set out a bucket of water with a GoPro in the bottom in order to see what sorts of animals would stop by for a drink.
Because sometimes what you need most is to watch a variety of thirsty animals getting a refreshing drink from the perspective of the water they’re all drinking.
“Everybody loves water in the desert. I was pleasantly surprised during the edit to see that George made an appearance. I know him from all the other rabbits because of the tiny notch in his ear. A burro just happened to come by in time to be included. Ben went against the script and decided to just nudge the bucket. You can lead a steer to water but you can’t make him drink. Note: The swimming bees were rescued.”
