Title Croton fantzianus in 1080p
Downloaded 11 times
Description Croton fantzianus. Here, several interesting behaviors are visible. Notably, cows use their heads and necks to break the tree's branches, particularly of C. fantzianus and Mimosa palmeri, bringing softer, more nutritious material into range. This behavior is especially common in late fall, when deciduous tropical dry forest (TDF) species begin to shed their leaves. An early 10 second video, testing 1080p at 60 frames per second (fps). Due to cow head movements while feeding, I ended up going with 720p at 120fps, sacrificing a bit of image quality for soothing slow motion action. Consumo de C. fantzianus. Aqui se ven varios comportamientos interesantes. Por ejemplo, las vacas de este área usan sus cabezas y cuellos para quebrar ramas, en particular de C. fantzianus y Mimosa palmeri, en tal manera alcanzando materiales blandos y nutritivos. Este comportamiento se nota principalmente en otoño, cuando las especies del bosque tropical seco empiezan a perder sus hojas. El video es uno de los mas preliminarios, grabado en 1080p a 60 cuadros por segundo. Debido a movimientos de las cabezas de las vacas mientras consumen plantas, decidí a grabar videos de 720p a 120 cuadros por segundo, sacrificando un poco de calidád de imagen para videos a cámara lenta.
