The Covid Camping Nature Snapshots 2 video features a wide variety of western wildlife and panoramic landscapes. Each photo appears for five seconds. A mellow music soundtrack was imbedded to enhance the viewing experience. The image transition special effects help to ensure that this modern nature slideshow video will not be just another snoozer!
All of the images were filmed while Covid isolation camping throughout the west. This adventure began as a six month Destination West website content gathering mission and ended up being a two and a half year long ordeal. It goes without saying that I had an overabundance of nature content by the time the trip came to an end. When considering the high volume of material, it is easy to see why the Covid camping videos are finally being published in late 2023!
The second Covid camping nature video is similar to the first, yet there is an even wider variety of wildlife species. The new scenes feature badger, moose and plenty more pronghorn. Several western deer species are featured along with fawns. A few bighorn bucks appear too.
Of course the pelicans are everywhere in the nature videos, since I followed their migration path during the autumn season. More of the blue hour pelicans can be seen too, which were filmed during a sunset visit at Ouray National Wildlife Refuge. There also is an abundance of macro lens flower, bug and cactus close-ups.
Most of the birding sessions were filmed at Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge, Pahranagat National Wildlife Refuge and in the Sumpter Valley Wildlife Management Area. These are all premium places to be during the migration seasons. By the time the photos were taken for this video, my birding skills had improved to an acceptable level and far more keepers were landed. This was a good thing because the ospreys were very active at that time.
There is more than enough nature material from the Covid camping years to make two more modern slideshow videos. Very few elk have been pictured so far, but that will change soon. The next scheduled video actually is 100% elk! I was lucky enough to film a huge herd of over 200 Colorado elk during the autumn rutting season and they were definitely on the move. The elk video and a third assorted wildlife collection will top off the last of the Covid camping nature slideshows, so be sure to stay tuned!
*On a side note, this article was overlooked somehow and had to be published out of order in the time line. The link problem with the YouTube index page has also been resolved!

*This website will be going through renovations soon. Separate destination articles will be combined after the videos replace the outdated photo gallery system. As many readers know, most of the writing was done on the fly while camping, so many articles read like a rough draft. The articles will be cleaned up and edited. Many of the old photos were straight out of the camera due camping limitations as well, so you will finally see full living color images, just like in the new videos. Another goal is to make navigating the index pages easier and condensing the articles will help. This website will continue into the future and your patience is greatly appreciated!
