Animals of all sizes stop to take a drink in bucket-cam video
Sit back, relax, and let creatures of the wild sipping water from a bucket soothe you into oblivion.
According to Storyful, John Wells of The Field Lab in Terlingua, Texas, had a simple idea for a video called “The Bucket.” Wells left a camera at the bottom of a bucket of water in the desert near his lab to see if any visitors would come by to take a drink.
What he discovered was a whole range of critters from bees to a rabbit to a donkey stopping by the bucket for a free taste. We’ve never been that close to a donkey’s snout before, but it sure is an interesting view.
“A burro just happened to come by in time to be included,” Wells wrote. “Ben went against the script and decided to just nudge the bucket. You can lead a steer to water but you can’t make him drink. Note: The swimming bees were rescued.”
So simple, so calming, so…zzz.
