My name is Elizabeth and I am established this community because I love the Pond and as a longtime LiveJournal user, I feel this site offers the perfect environment for the folks who enjoy the WildCam.

Fatty's Favorite:

Fatty has chosen the video gallery by Nancy - IN as his favorite new feature this month. Nancy has added several Pete's Pond videos to a YouTube gallery. YouTube displays videos in Macromedia Flash format, which is compatible with PCs and Macs. You can read about YouTube video galleries in the Technical Stuff blog (under Pete's Pond Information Blogs) in the section on Free Online Video Galleries.

NEW Movie Showing!

A new movie is featured in the WMP window at the main site - "One Windy Day" (7:19 minutes). It is a compilation of videos from Pete's Pond all on the same windy day. The video clips are by Nancy-IN, blended with the sounds of the various African animals, and mixed with South African folk music by Nyamamusang. The movie will automatically play once in the WMP window at the main site. You can play it again by clicking the play button in WMP.
