24 Hours Alone in Amakhala

I recently found some footage of mine on my hard drive which I have not used. I edited it together today.

Spider Up Close

I was pleased with the results I got when using my macro lens with a white blank background when I took photos of froglets (here). Today I saw a big spider on my window. I carefully grabbed him so as not to hurt or damage it and placed it on the card. You may not want to look if you are arachnophobic since this is a big looking spider. If you look at the bottom of the fangs you can see what I believe to be venom. I was surprised at how hairy the spider actually was.

The weather was very misty which did not burn off for hours so the whole film appears slightly washed out.

Bonobos Eye to Eye: Slideshow

Another bonobo video I have made from my time in the DRC. Some of my favourites are in this one. Hope you like my little twist on a standard slideshow. Watch the video to see the effect. The transition effect is a bit different to traditional slideshows.
