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.
