We have a third hummingbird.   He showed up today and is engaging in a turf war with the other male.   I was outside this evening to take photos of what I hoped was going to be a gorgeous sunset after our rain today.   I was outside the door when these two little dudes started a chase scene that often passed by about a foot away from my head.   It's a good thing I wear glasses because they could've poked me in the eye.   Seriously, it could happen.   They seemed completely unaware of me and my camera.   Of course I couldn't get them in their Dirty Harry chase scene, but after a short while I saw what might be my chance.   They landed in the pine tree for a quick breather.   And this is what I captured, shown after a bit of Lightroom editing.   I just thought it was pretty cool.   These hummers are quite the entertainment when little else is going on....which is most of the time.

My favorite part of hummingbird wars is the soundtrack. Cheepy, peepy, and a bit screechy ... going past you at 1000 mpg.

Cool shot!

Geez ... correction ... that was supposed to be 1000 mph (miles per hour), not mpg. Now that I think of it, I wonder how many mpg a hummingbird gets?
