At the 1:57 mark a Whitetail buck came in to check out the setup. It was caught on 20 frames, and was there for about 10 minutes. It was only 50 yards from the camera, dolly and light.
At the 3:24 mark, a meteor reflects on the water of the small lake, see still below in Photos. There are also quite a few other meteors in the timelapse.
This was all shot in central South Dakota from June-August.
Canon 5D Mark II for a few shots, Canon 60D and T2i

Simon Wilkinson at thebluemask.com created the music "Tempest" and sound for it.
I used the Dynamic Perception Stage Zero Dolly on most of the shots as well, it is awesome. dynamicperception.com
