Allen’s Hummingbird

I spent Saturday morning photographing a few of these Hummingbirds. They zip through the air sometimes in a swinging motion then they race straight up, up, up like a rocket blasting off then nose dive at top speed down to their nest or perch. Their wings make a high pitched squealing noise much like putting on the brakes hard and fast.

There were quite a few skirmishes for territory yesterday as well. They were very entertaining to watch.
