Throughout the summer we have had Ruby-throated Hummingbirds (RTHU)at the sugar-water feeders. They are brazen, confident, belligerent, and mechanically amazing. They chase each other with great vigor as they defend the food supply. They fly in and stop, in mid-air, to look around and then zip (nothing is languid about their movements) to the feeder or to harass another RTHU or simply to go somewhere else.
I have not been doing blog pages for a while and wanted to get back in the saddle – so here are a few hummingbird images from 15 September of this year.
