So the hummers continued their crazy airshow off and on for most of the day. Every now and then I would hear one bump against the window as it miscalculated an attack or escape. Luckily, there were no apparent casualties.
I went outside around 4 pm (when it was finally sort of warm) to try and capture some hummer photos in the afternoon sunlight. My little friends quickly showed up and resumed their squabbling.
One of the females settled in to feed, but trouble quickly arrived in the form of the male who claimed that feeder as his turf.

Thanks to all of you who come here, and especially thanks for enduring my endless fascination with the hummingbirds.
I'm resolving to try to get back to more diverse creative topics in the new year, which means I need to oil the sewing machine and dust off the printer and get busy.
Wishing a happy & healthy 2011 to all!
