Hummingbird Conflict by taffy

Hummingbird Conflict

Four hummingbirds were fighting over the feeder, swooping and sniping at each other each time someone was on it. The remaining ones would regroup and then take their turn (don't understand why they won't share as there's a spout for each one). I snapped continuously to try to catch more than one in a frame, in focus, and not at the feeder. Of the too-many-to-mention, this one came out. I'm pretty excited about it.
Hoping to get back to posting and commenting soon. Many tasks done, several more to go. Thank you for your visits and comments, which I very much appreciate.

They are like sweet wee angels flitting about the sky! Super shot!

@pamknowler It was so peaceful and there were really entertaining. Here's a collage I put on Facebook of a single bird using burst to get its 'happy dance.' https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10215609744570702&set=a.1258479856126&type=3&theater

What a catch!! They must be stroppy little critters!

Nicely captured. Hummingbirds battling/ dancing. Fly so fast usually. If you don’t have camera in hand they are usually gone by time take pictures

How lovely to catch these little birds like this. I liked your dance series on facebook too!
