that was terrific! I'm glad the spiders got represented. Was that some sort of pirate ship I saw docked early on?

This is awesome. I just wish someone would get out and fix the current fuzzy focus problem. :D

I am sure the issue affecting the clarity of the images is due to a film of moisture condensing on either the camera lens or the surface of whatever type of enclosure it is in (or behind). Occasionally, when this layer of condensation freezes, it can build up to quite a substantial thickness. I included a few frames of this thick layer in order to highlight it. The ice eventually sublimes or the water evaporates but it can take several days of proper dew point.

It certainly was interesting, observing all the various traffic. I sent a suggestion to the park headquarters, that a webcam be added to Snug Harbor (or the Tobin Harbor camera be relocated as it is almost always "out of order"). A Snug Harbor Marina view would keep me and many other people well occupied. Another suggestion was one at Washington Creek, where there are Moose present most every day.
