I agree with all the above!! This is really STAND-OUT work. Is it nine frames of the same bird? Wonderful!!

Thank you very much everyone. This was a fun picture which took 2 hours to shoot and another 5 hours to put together. There were a 4 birds playing together. I am not an expert in bird identification. So its hard to tell any differences between them. But most of the shots were probably of the same bird, because among 4 there was one bird which seemed to be the bravest and would come closest to the camera.

I have to say... that all the time you put into this project has paid off.
I did not notice the difference in the birds until I read your comment. Keep it up you can really make a lot of cool images with this idea.

Without a doubt, July's best photograph, in my opinion. Perhaps some extra work in PS7, would have earned it the top spot. Background lines, that may only be evident at 72DPI, or a result of combining several frames, could have been cloned out or otherwise overcome. I think that minor flaw, may have been the difference. This is a brilliantly designed & executed photograph, Anupam. Congratulations!

Lem, thanks for your comments. I very much appreciate it. I agree the edges of the seams could have been cloned and mixed better. This is one of the earlier versions of this image, and I was pretty happy that I could put it together. I didn't check the background carefully at that time. I have fixed it later. But by that time I had already submitted it here.

Comments like yours are very helpful, because it helps the photographer to improve. Thanks.

Great shot. It really caught my eye.

I'm sure you love your Nikon toy. From the sharpness and depth of field, I assume you are using Nikon lens as well? What were your settings for the shots?

Yep, I love my D100, especially when using with a long lens because of the 1.5x crop factor. I used Nikkor 80-200 f/2.8 AFD lens for this one. Exposure was f4 at 1/2000s at ISO 400. Thanks for your comment.
