Still enjoying my Safari…

As my last post stated, I’ve found a Safari I can enjoy while sitting at my desk in my bedroom without ever getting up (and with no costs).  Though my current iPad and my phone allow me to move around the house along with other open wi-fi areas and watch as well.  Ustream.tv had allowed myself to view and listen to a waterhole in Botswana, as wildebeests, an assortment of birds, zebras, and a lot more types of animals drink from the pond and relax by the “beach.”  A few days ago I saw the first hyena to finally come across my screen.  I’ve also seen a bunch of owls, warthogs, and ducks, though I haven’t seen any elephants in a week or so.

Along with the Botswana and South African cameras, the ustream.tv site also has links to other live cams featuring all types of animals around the world.  Here are a few of the print screen “pictures” I have taken while watching over the last few days:

these South American and African penguins are at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americans in the French Quarter of New Orleans.  Not only are they cute to watch, they're also very loud...

here's a pair of storks in Poland; I watched as they "cleaned" up their nest, despite the cold winds...they were shivering.

Here are some new pics I snapped while watching the pond in Botswana:

I've heard the Hyenas cackleing, but haven't seen them until this one came by for a drink...

pretty sure this is a duck, sure as heck sounded like one. Loved the reflection in the water...

The Botswana cam has been off line the last 2 days, due to the satellite company changing the IP address without telling those controlling the website.  The website masters have posted that they might have someone who can go out to the reserve and adjust the cameras so they can come back online.  In the meantime, there are plenty of other cams to watch…

HOW YOU DOIN?

    I’ve been enjoying the link as well. I watch the ocean and the watering hole. I’ve shared the link with a few of my families who homeschool their kids, too. Thanks sooo much.
