Marigolds: Fifteen Days of Life (video)

So, I've been getting really into time lapse photography videos lately. Here's the first I've put online. 
Enjoy.


This is a time lapse of a marigold plant taken over fifteen days. Shots were taken 20 minutes apart, so each second of 30fps video represents 10 hours of real time. A couple key things to note: this video is a collection of still shots. Any movement of the plants is the plants themselves actually moving very slowly over time. There is no wind, as the plants are indoors, and wind at this infrequent interval of shots would simply cause the plants to blur dramatically. Also, note that in the shot of the plant's water, the water level drops because the plant takes up water when respiration increases in sunlight - not as a result of evaporation.

Ok, now that's REALLY cool. It looks like they're waving at you! They take on a sort of alien persona- neat!
