Live in Harmony

At the Freedom house we live in harmony with nature. Checkout this video of me coming to the rescue when a poor hummingbird couldn't find its way outside. Very awesome.

Oh MAN dude how many people have ever had a hummingbird in their hand? Seriously! And then have a video camera in the other hand? I seriously wonder if this has ever been done before. That was so cool you should've kept it and named it Ben.

I rarely say things like this but the way you were talking to that hummingbird was adorable!!

Nice work, you can now call yourself the "hummingbird whisperer" :)

Wicked! That was cool. I tell you, the tropics ain't got nothing on you.

WOW... awesome catch! You are one with nature: "Be the bird!" Ok, so it wasn't as quick as Mr. Miagi catching a fly with chopsticks, but it was still pretty impressive!

Bob & Dawn Davis said...

How cool was that? He was welcoming you to your new home. The Freedom house... I love it!

Dane Sanders said...

dude,
if that's not a metaphor for what you do for people, I don't know what is. i've spent way too much of my life flapping at a glass wall ... the fresh air is pretty awesome.

Janell said...

Watching the video was a spiritual experience that said so much to me. Great way to start the day. THANKS!

GOOD COMMENT DANE! That should be the demo video for the freedom club! Here little buddy, be free!

I really like the part where you almost had him in your fingertips. It is rare to see one perch, and I've never ever heard of one landing in someone's hand!

you to kind :)

Shannon said...

amen to the freedom metaphor. AHHH! so great!

Deyl said...

those remote controlled hummingbirds always run out of batteries so fast!

Penny Sylvia said...

wow! I love humingbirds ... in fact everytime I see one that has landed ... it just amazes me ... truly awesome that you got to help alittle one on his journey!! Totally cool.

That was amazing!

Love freedom house! And I like what Dane said too - sooo true!

megan said...

that was fantastic- hummingbirds are great symbols of love... not a bad thing to chill in your hand.

Stacy Cross said...

Awwww. That warms my animal-loving heart. :)

Ricki Ford said...

You are a hero in the hummingbird world now DJ.
I bet he went and told all his friends and now there are going to be a lot of hummingbirds at the freedomm house...lol

Sweet save DJ

Ginger Murray said...

That made my heart glad!

The other day, I met a bride and a groom at the church I'll be shooting them at, and there was a bird stuck inside... i tried everything to get him out! The ceilings were too high in the doorway he was stuck in, so I wasn't able to reach him! It made me so sad!

I really loved this video...so sweet of you.. I can't believe it stayed in your hand... that's awesome! I'm not the only person chasing birds, ha:)

That was beautiful. Single handed too. Amazing!

nate said...

But was deej wearing any pants??

rachel said...

maybe the hummingbird was thinking..."leave me alone man. I wanna crash at this bachelor pad too!" haha!

Nicholaus Haskins said...

DJ..is it just me, or do I see gray hair poking through!

Ron Dawson said...

Camera in one hand. Hummingbird in the other hand. AND you open the door. That's what I call multi-talented.

Very cool. Thanks for sharing.
