I've been concerned all summer about not seeing any Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in my yard...
It took all summer, but I finally have the Hummers!!!!
As a matter of fact, I have 4 that visit.
Yesterday, I spent the afternoon sitting under the feeder from about 6 feet away to get these shots.
My next venture is to get them acclimated to me, so that I can hold the feeder as they feed.
It's my favorite time of migration, when the hummers compete for food in my yard.
They protect the feeders from other hummers.
Here is a shot where a male hummer is chasing off another, and I happen to catch this one flying at me, and chattering at the enemy hummer...
