Farmer hides camera in a bucket of water, catches animals of all sizes quenching their thirst

A man named John Wells decided to try something new when he moved from the hustle and bustle of New York to live in the middle of nowhere to pursue a life off-the-grid in Texas. He took a bucket of water and placed a camera inside and calmly waited to see which animals would come by.

The project took place at The Field Lab, “a Southwest Texas alternative energy and sustainable living field laboratory.” There, various animals came by to drink some water and cool down. Bees (which were later saved) took a swim in the water, a pair of chickens pecked at the water, and both a cow and donkey came by to take a break, among other animals.

On the project, Wells explained: “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.” He also explained later that “Note: The swimming bees were rescued.”

Wells is already known in certain circles for crafting an eco-friendly home that utilizes solar energy and composting for a grand total of $1600. The beauty of animals in their wild is truly a stunning look into animals at their most candid.

Here are just a few of the animals he caught on tape.
