Off The Beaten Path

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same.

Blooms 'n Birds

video

We have hummingbird all over the yard this time of year, but they don't allow each other to eat, they fight. They hang in the air chirping at one another, vying for position and no one gets any food. I got a quick shot of this guy as he got in for a quick snack before being driven away.

Hi Libby, how you doing?

Well, they aren't aggressive to humans, they are afraid of us, but towards each other, there seems to be a dominant one, and the others have to do as he says, because one eats all he wants, and chases the others all over the place. They have to catch a bite here and there, no matter how many hummingbird feeders I put out, it is the same thing, one hummers tries to keep any of the others from eating. The more feeders you put out, the more work he has to do, and he is just darting and chasing all over the place, and chirping. At the very end of the video you can hear the chirping.....
