I have tried and tried to photograph the hummingbirds coming to our feeders. Unfortunately, there is so much territorial behavior that no one feeds long enough for me to get a good photo. We must have several families, and there is constant discord and defense of the feeders. They sip and go. A chase usually follows. I'm sure they must expend more energy than they receive in the nectar.
During a recent visit to a park ranger station, I was delighted to find hummingbirds peacefully enjoying an afternoon drink. They were most accommodating.
Ah! So cool and refreshing.
Did you want a profile shot?
Focus on me. Never mind the blurry bird at the other feeder.
Of course we can share. There's plenty for everyone.
Only one of them seemed a bit indignant at my presence:
So, what you looking at?
It was wonderful to see such a peaceful gathering of hummingbirds. On the other hand, I also love my little rebels too.
