Hummingbirds have dogfight

The hummingbirds were out in force last weekend on the Koontz mountain farm, sniffing away at the beebalm in the field next to our cabin.

Two males got into a bumping match, which turned out to be pretty entertaining, though difficult to photograph. They move fast.

I could hear them thump, thump, thumping in the air, looking like World War II fighter planes over the Pacific.

Flying Tigers and John Wayne come to mind.
