Ruby-throated Hummingbird 090116g copy

It was extremely busy out in the backyard last night. There was times when 4 birds would be feeding peacefully, then take off and start their aerial posturing and chase each other off. I have only seen once or twice that the birds tangle up and actually go to the ground but they often chase each other through the trees and into the woods. I was very pleased to finally get an image of the birds doing this and have one sharp. It is definitely not easy, but will help my other bird photography I am sure.
On a different note, Hurricane Hermine made landfall around 1:30 a.m. just a bit east of Apalachicola. Hopefully there has been little damage to the Forgotten Coast and they can rebuild quickly keeping the same charm they have maintained all these years. It was nice to see familiar areas on TV this morning with little or no damage. I look forward to seeing my friends down there in November. I am thinking of doing a winter/spring workshop there around March to help show support as always for their economy. I will keep you posted.
