    Awesome video !! I was some frightened when the humming bird was caught in the spider web and the spider was on the move !! The bats and the cactii were also awesome ! The efforts pit into such videos are tremendous, sometimes it takes a few years work for a 1 minute clip.

    Amazing photography! Like Zain, I found it quite impressive that he even managed to capture a female bat carrying her offspring. Love to watch hummingbirds -- ornery little devils that they are.

    Thanks a million Cathy for sharing this most amazing video. It was so moving - truly poetry in motion, a celebration of life encapsulated in a short video clip. Awesome editing! What a beautiful and touching ending with that burst of the monarch butterflies, akin to the release of the life force.

    Great video. Thanks for sharing! Paul, I can't believe you spotted that bat w/baby. Good eyesight.
