Excercising Futility

What if you set up a web cam that would only be active during daylight hours? What if you pointed it at a small open area? What if you were using it to try to capture images of a shy creature that didn’t often come out in the open? What if that creature was mostly nocturnal?

Why, if you did all that, you’d have the Snail-Cam!

Yes, Snail-Cam! is here and its live! Every two minutes, from dawn till dusk (or times thereabouts) it is uploading pictures from inside my aquarium! Pictures of plants! Gravel! Bubbles! And maybe, rarely, once in a while, a glimpse of a snail! Weeee!

There’s also the zebra danios in there, but they are way too fast for the Snail-Cam! to catch. You might see a striped blur here and there, that’s the danios.

So, let’s hear it for the Snail-Cam! Yay!

Snail-Cam!
