It takes two... by kayaksailor It takes two... by kayaksailor
to tangle.

Disputes over whose turn it is at the feeder... two male Anna's hummingbirds get aggressive.

More hummingbirds here in my hummer gallery: [link]

I could hear their wings hitting at times :wow:

we only have a couple birds this time of year and while I miss them, I sure don't miss filling the feeders every day :laughing:

Excellent job! I've had no luck photographing hummingbirds, but your photos are beautiful.

Thanks so much! Having the time to hang around the feeder for several hours (and taking a ton of shots:giggle:) helps with the luck :D

Oh noooo! Don't think that!! I felt the same when I first started watching Walt...practice helps, but mostly it is confidence and having the birds be used to you. And as always - lots and lots of shots :giggle:

I was so thrilled that I got this fight!

Lots of the incredible hummer shooters here on dA spend lots of time and energy with flashes and strobes and I know that I should pay more attention, but I'm not usually willing to give up that much time :giggle: the sun coming over my shoulder works pretty darn well :D

I know what you mean...it would really be a hassle to set up strobes and all that all the time but I'm simply gonna have to try...the results are too interesting. :nod: I know, I do get some good shots, but they just look so drab compared to yours and Walts. :(
