I loved it. It's beautiful. I thought the soundtrack was good, and especially enjoyed the flute music.

The photography was excellent but, overall the documentary was lacking. I think it could have been much, much better if:

1. The visuals and narration had included some of the footage and information that was in "The Making Of" segment.

2. The chapter titles had been eliminated because they were disrupting and unnecessary since either it was obvious what was happening or, if it weren't obvious, the concept could have easily been worked into the narration to create a better flow.

3. And, most of all, the highly unfortunate music that had nothing to do with the mood or action of the documentary had been different. I wish there would have been a way to turn the music track off because it really brought the whole piece down, was annoying and almost made it unwatchable.

I found this documentary boring. It's about a hummingbird named Honey, who builds her nest on a clothesline in two nature filmmakers' backyard. She lays two eggs there. The music didn't really suit what was going on. I didn't enjoy this as much as I thought I would.
