We get just enough southern bound hummers to increase territorial ferocity around the prize ( a feeder full of nectar) where it is a constant battle zone. They are not much more than a blur because it is quick and loud as they zoom by. The camera caught these two in the fray. The female defender above is lit by red light reflected from the feeder while the male challenger below is giving his all to escape from harm’s way. Such is the life of a hummingbird, one challenge after another.
