Answer all of these questions at once with Gawker, a cute little GPL’d (free) mac program that makes making time lapse movies a cinch. Watch a 30-second quicktime clip of my garden Snail Race. The video quality suffers a little from variable lighting [stupid moving clouds!] and the tiny lens. Go snails go! “Link.
