Here we share a video showing desert life secretly filmed approaching a water bucket to quench their thirst.
From bees, to chickens, to a donkey and a rabbit, we get a ‘bucket’s-eye’ view of nature taking a drink.
The video was uploaded by John Wells from The Field Lab, a Southwest Texas alternative energy and sustainable living field laboratory.
As John noted, “Everybody loves water in the desert. I was pleasantly surprised during the edit to see that George (the rabbit) made an appearance. I know him from all the other rabbits because of the tiny notch in his ear. A burro just happened to come by in time to be included. 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.”
