Fight Flight

We have bundles of hummingbirds buzzing through the air in our backyard.  They often tussle in mid-flight--here I caught one little lady as she flicked her tail and chittered over an interloper at the feeders.  It is a bit blurred, but something about this photo filled my eyes.

What a wonderful shot! Now if you could just get one where his wings aren't moving. (tee hee)
Have a Fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend Sissy Bea. Love you.

Very nice closeup shot Beth! The only thing I don't like about my hummers is the way they fight over the feeder. Sometimes they can be downright mean to each other!

How lovely ! They are so cute and tiny - and I wish I could see one "in person" once... but we do not have them here in Germany.
We have "Maikaefer" ( May Bugs) though, which are of that size ( 1inch and noisy buzz) - but these are rather yucky and not cute...
