So I posted this picture to reddit where people will photoshop images for fun.  The results have been fantastic.  I hope this isn't offensive to you, Mr. Kohrshid.  If it is, just let me know and I will remove it.  


I earn no money or notoriety from sharing the picture on reddit.  I was just interested in seeing the creative things people might do with it.  So far, it's been pretty good.  The one of your bird conducting an orchestra is particularly notable.

This capture of “Put a Wing on It” is singular Mohd. I like the creativity, lighting, story and composition of this shot. You have some great photos in your galley. Congratulations on making the ‘DD’ of May 04, 2015. You deserve the most praise though for "Put a Wing on It" being chosen for "Photo of the Day" June, 29, 2015. I would like to invite you to stop by my gallery. - Stan

This is an amazing capture.  What a beautiful little creature enjoying itself and maybe cooling off.

A beautiful shot, sharp focus and the drops of water frozen in the air. And the look on the birds face - just beautiful.
