I was fascinated by the chickens because I've watched my own chickens drink a zillion times and I still can't figure out how they manage to stay hydrated.

I know the guy. Talk about suprised his little video went viral. He was shocked. I posted about John's TFL project a few years ago. Worth watching his stuff.

This was surprisingly charming and peaceful, and I've now watched it several times. While enjoying a glass of water. Nicely done!

I didn't know bees drank water from, you know, just water. I assumed they got it from flowers.

Actually, he rescued the bees. A shallow pan with pebbles is much a safer way of leaving water out for bees and butterflies.

I was on board till the burro backwash. Seems the other animals shared the sentiment. There's one at every party, isn't there. Backwashing in the bucket and ruining it for everyone else.

If you've got flowering plants to attract bees (or even just because) it's a good idea to put water out for them as it'll encourage them to stay around more. It is important though as Katjusa Roquette said to either have stones/rocks in the water or use a birdbath/pan with very gently sloping sides so the bees/butterfly/spiders don't get trapped.

The bunny was a delightful surprise.
