Quite a project, and admittedly not what I had intended with the trip - it was just to be another photo adventure

But here it is; 14 hours of video clips condensed into 2 minutes - all taken within 100 yards of each other from 6:10 am to 7:50 pm on a South Dakota Prairie Wetland (there is a noon gap at which point I had to stretch a bit so I moved around for an hour and then took my usual nap which has become a routine to get through the harsh midday light). The project really shows the diversity and importance of these small pieces of land; which is about the size of a football field and how many species they help sustain. Ironically the birds I traveled for were not to be found so I will have a return trip next weekend to see if they have arrived yet as the spring migration rolls on.
