incredible, love the images and the photos. the hummingbird moth with it's tendrils showing, fantastic!

Dear Marmee,
My husband picked the music this week!
"Libertango" is the music for this slide show. It is the last cut from the soundtrack, "The Tango Lesson."
I loved the way this piece went with my week looking for more space for posting.
The main character in the movie is looking for a space for the dancers...he finds one and a fantastic tango breaks out with all four dancers. An amazing dance and filming.
Yo-Yo Ma plays the cello in this recording. Another amazing artist.
The weather has turned cold and rainy. It could be the last sighting of the Hummingbird moth this year...I will miss them.
How strange that Photostory would not download for you.
Try again. I would think there would be upgrades since I downloaded over a year ago.
I saw on Picassa they have a slide show feature, not sure if you can add music. I hope to play around some this winter when I am stuck inside!
Thank you for coming and watching and being supportive.
Have a grand weekend.

I wasn't able to get it to play. Must be something with my computer. I'll come back and try again.

Cheryl said...

How I love the tango.....passionate and seductive.......are we not passionate about our bugs and do they not seduce us into helping them.......we cannot resist......
beautifully put together Sherry as I know I can start my weekend....they always start with your video.......have a fun time........

Lovely - this presentation makes the white stillness of winter seem a little distant! I'm always thrilled to see your photographs and hear a piece of music I might not be familiar with. Fridays are good! Thanks, Sherry!

Whooo hoooooo, sounds like we are having a livley weekend with this send off Sherry. That robin should have had a rose in its mouth during this dance. tee hee...

Q said...

Dear Marnie,
I hope it plays for you!
I think sometimes it takes awhile for the slide shows to load.

Q said...

Dear Cheryl,
I too love the Tango.
We ARE passionate about our bugs and birds and nature!
I am so happy you enjoy the slide shows. I look forward to creating them.
Thank you for being so kind and supportive.

Q said...

Dear Sue,
I was wondering if you were in the blizzard that came through the Northwest! It has cooled down some here but still no frost.
Thank for coming every week. Thank you for enjoying the shows!

Q said...

Dear Lisa,
I am having so much fun. Hope you are too!
I think the weather is to be in the 60's tomorrow and I bet we will have bugs flying!
Thanks for coming by!

Wendy said...

Lovely, happy music!
Happy bugs and butterflies too.
Have a wonderful weekend, Sherry.
As always, a lovely post.

Jules and Ken said...

I enjoyed the your slide show and the music, how fun!!

Q said...

Dear Wendy,
This music gets me moving!
I like to think the birds and butterflies out in the backyard are happy critters.
I watched 6 Blue Jays yesterday get peanuts...they seemed very happy.
Have a great weekend too. I am going on a photo shoot! Hope to find some Happy Halloween!

Q said...

Dear Jules,
So glad you did.
I like creating the slide shows for Friday. They are the week in review.
Hope you are having a great weekend.

I love the photos of the bluejay, Sherry. I have been watching them from afar in my crab trees; it's not hard to spot their bright blue plumage.
Delightful music and such cheery, sunny photos on this cold and rainy day here.

Mary said...

It looks as though summer is still in bloom there, Sherry. Do you really have butterfly bushes with blooms so large? Not here!

Lovely video - good music.


Q said...

Dear Mary,
The butterfly bushes are very large! This one that is still in bloom is about 6 feet tall. I have four and this one is the biggest.
Soon the frost will come and put an end to all my flowers. It is getting to be time to mulch the beds and get things ready for winter.

Q said...

Dear Rose,
I have seen more Blue Jays this year than ever before. I too enjoy their bright blue plumage. They are bold birds too. I like the way they come right up to the deck for their peanuts.
It has been a lovely Autumn. Slowly the colder days have come in. The sun adds ten degrees!
Hard frost this past week has taken many of the blooms. I will need to feed the butterflies and bees with fruit.
Thank you for enjoying the slide shows. I sure do enjoy creating them.
