Food Fight !

a mid-air territorial dispute between two hummingbirds - they aren't as fast as the new generation fighter jets , nor can they carry the same payload - they can , however , fly backwards !

I was surprised when I first learned how aggressive these sweet little flower sippers can be.

Hello Zdenek - the hummingbirds thank you !

Greatly appreciated Ada and thanks for stopping by !

It was the summer olympics Eva !

They spend almost as much time defending their territories as they do feeding kenfowkes - just when you think you are going to get decent shots , another hummingbird spoils the fun and they chase each other around the yard at a high rate of speed !
