Little Bird / Big Bird!

I'm traveling again this week... do you ever find that work gets in the way of the more important stuff in your life, like photography? I took this shot (actually, shots) a few weeks ago. It's a composite image of two photos taken on the same day / same lens. My timing wasn't good enough to capture both the hummingbird and jet in the same shot, but I still like the end result!
Linking with Skywatch Friday. Hope you are having a great week, and thanks for stopping by!


  1. To me that is a happy accident. Awesome shot!

  2. Oh, what a delightful, fun capture!! I love it! I hope you and the bird have a great weekend!!

  3. I do like that!

  4. It is great that you can combine the two shots--makes for an interesting photo. Great close up of the hummingbird. Have a nice weekend. Mickie :)

  5. I wonder if the little Hummer wishes he could go as fast as a jet---well it seems like he already can.
    Neat splice. MB

  6. Indeed a great combination and I like that the bird is in the foreground.

  7. What a cool combination! Love the cute hummer! Happy skywatching and have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Wonderful combination of the bird and the plane!

  9. Great shot that and love the plane in the background. Did you see my Kites on Tuesday

  10. Wonderful shot of nature's adorable bird and yet 'man made' jet in the background ~ Great for SWF ~ thanks, ^_^

  11. This is awesome!! Never would've thought to combine two images to make one great one. Will have to remember this! Thanks. :)

  12. What fun. If that was a single shot the depth of field would have been amazing.

  13. Awesome and cool shot, what a catch!

  14. Yep, work gets in the way of my blogging, picture taking, and geocaching all the time. Clever pic that you have there.

  15. Oh my gosh! Stunning picture/composite/whatever it is called. I love it. I didn't blog when I was still working (I don't think the Internet had been invented yet ;>) ) and remain in awe of all of you who can do both.

  16. Nice idea!

    Yes, my coast shot was a wide angle shot.

  17. Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Asta Kaliya Lila Version 1
    -8 verses describing Radha and Krishna's eternal daily pastimes

    Asta Kaliya Lila Version 2
    -A slightly different version of 8 verses that describes Radha and Krishna's eternal daily pastimes

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:
