Wonderful photos, James! Alas, even if I had the equipment, I’d never get shots like this. Not because our hummers have gone south (they’ve stayed late this year — we counted three this morning!) or because they’re shy (so long as we make no sudden moves) but because our ruby throats can’t stand the idea of another hummingbird at THEIR FEEDER. So what were the three we saw this morning doing? Chasing each other all over everywhere. And if one broke off to try to get breakfast, the other two would suddenly unite to attack. C’mon, birds, can’t we all just get along? It’s a long way to Mexico and everybody needs to stock up…
