I’ve noticed a number of the flowers here in Namibia open and close daily. Especially some of the succulents and cacti. What that means is that if I want to do timelapse videography I can try and record every day until I get it right. Unfortunately some of the succulents flower only one day, which means I have to know when they’re going to open because I only get one shot.
I did these timelapses using my iPad and the app TimeLapse Camera HD. It’s a couple weeks’ worth of setting the iPad up on my way out to work in the morning. Luckily it doesn’t rain much here! The down side is being limited to the battery life of the iPad – it may be worth trying with an extension cord.
