    Here are some hummingbird photos I took before dawn this morning, the fall migration is moving through in waves and waves of little wings. I just have to share the wealth so enjoy!

    Wow! We never have more than 2-3 at a time, and they are so territorial they try to impale one another when they feed!

    Never seen anything like it

    You are soooo fortunate to live in a place and experience this wonderful thing. I'm sure it must have its downsides too....

    I have three hummingbird feeders and maybe six birds. They are such feisty, territorial little guys! Got to love them. Fortunately I seem to have several females as well.

    Those are crazy pics. What kind of camera do you have?
    I like how the wings are not blurred.
