WE Highlights

Well this week has seen the addition of the Bald Eagles to the WildEarth site and what an amazing addition that is. I must admit I am blown away by their size and presence. At the moment they are few and far between because they have not yet laid their eggs. They are preparing the nest so every now and again an eagle lands and adds a few twigs but their frequency will increase dramatically in the coming months. So far we don't have any seekpoints made of the bald eagles but watch this space. I think the highlight for this week for me was watching the elephants swimming in Gowrie Dam. Firstly the dam itself is amazing. The bush almost looks tropical and the dam is the fullest I have ever seen it. Not many animals are coming to drink there at the moment because the bush is full of water and there is so much choice for the animals. However, the elephants are enjoying swimming in it and I have chosen a seek point which shows this well. Pieter is back in camp today and I am sure you will agree with me that Rexon has done incredibly well on his own for the last two and a half weeks. I have chosen a great seek point where he describes eating locusts in his culture. Finally I chose a scene with some dwarf mongeese. They are one of my favourites of the smaller animals as they have such personality. Enjoy. Emily Wallington http://links.wildearth.tv/elephants-swimming

You always make your videos so entertaining and funky. I like your use of effects. I must admit I missed this piece of art and Blaze bought it to my attention. It is great, thanks and please please keep on making videos. You are wonderful at it.

It gives you a glimpse of what we are going to see over the next few weeks. It will be so exciting when the eggs are laid and waiting for them to hatch. I can't wait. Thanks KimJ for this and I love the song.

The young impalas are having a blast frolicking in the long grass. I especially like the Scottish type music that you have put with it, it almost looks like they are moving in time to the music. Thanks Dave, once again you have made a wonderful video.
