Whether you are interested in a hummingbird’s eye view of a half billion monarch butterflies waking from their naps (see video above) or a Komodo dragon destroying a (robotic) spy pig for muscling in on his mating rituals, these spy animal videos have you covered.

Every time I make a change to EvoCam or to the Hikvision settings, something new occurs. Not necessarily good or bad, just new. And times like this I am simply baffled.
Again, it’s time to look under the hood.
