Do you see what I see?


I'll add a close-up,
if no one can find it.



See her now?

I clicked to enlarge the picture and still can't find anything.

Hmmm...?

I am going to guess an Ivory Billed Woodpecker! I think I see something but not 100% sure! A nest of some kind?

nina said...

Trust me, Lynne--there's really something there.
But, it's the something that many people walk past without realizing.

Monarch--you're on the right track (but I won't say WHICH right track you're on!)

Greg said...

I think I can see the forest......haha!

nina said...

Greg--good job!
Now put away the philosophy books and get out your magnifying glass! This is science class. ;-)

I discovered the label (by accident), so it wouldn't be fair for me to 'guess.' It was still a challenge, even though I knew what I was looking for. What a huge tree for such a tiny little thing.

I looked and looked, but since I've never seen one, I didn't really know what configuration to seek. So... Where's Waldo?

cestoady said...

I found it !! No wonder people miss it so easily. My question is : why do they pick such a spot ?? And how did you EVER find it ??

Susan Gets Native said...

A wee little hummer! How in the heck did you ever see her?
I'm going to start calling you Eagle Eye Nina.

nina said...

Yes! And she's on a nest!
(I'd like to claim the Eagle Eye award, but a friend actually has her in her yard and invited me over to photograph!)
And so I ponder...how much would I really use a better lens? And how many times do once-in-a-lifetime shots present themselves? Once?

The nest is smaller than the leaves. what a beautiful miniature.

It is no wonder that I never see their nests. They blend in so well.

When my children were young we lived nearly surrounded by forest. Of course my children were outside all the time. I would offer a reward of $20 for a hummingbird nest sighting to not only my children but the other children of the neighborhood. Telling them tonot touch of course just to show me. No one ever claimed it. I have seen only one nest in all these years. I would love to do so again. It is a special treat.

Lucky you! I still have no idea where our hummers are nesting.

Old Wom Tigley said...

What a great capture.. I bet you were buzzing as she was a humming.. :O)

I have looked for hummingbird nests for many years and can't spot them. Your photo might help me since now I see they are so small! Joan

dguzman said...

Wow, Nina--what a treat. I would LOVE to find a hummer nest, even an old one. To see something that finely crafted, that tiny! *sigh*

Pat - An Arkansas Stamper said...

Amazing! Thank you for the close-up!

Q said...

Dear Nina,
Sooo tiny.....
Beautiful and wonderful and I want one in my backyard too!
Wow! Will you go back for baby hummingbird pictures???
Thank you, I have never seen a Hummingbird nest in person! I always have a few Hummers about too.

Oh Nina, that's so cool! I would love to find such a nest in one of my trees someday.

Jennifer said...

Yeah... I never would have seen that nest without your closeup-help! I keep hoping to find one someday, but so far... I continue to hunt.
