Flashing Costa's Hummingbird by papatheo Flashing Costa's Hummingbird by papatheo
A male Costa's Hummingbird flashes me as I approach to photograph him. It is quite a treat to be able to be so close to these exquisite jewels and observe them as they go about their daily business of courting, nesting and feeding in this open air building. Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum, near Tucson, Arizona.

Very beautiful shot. I swear, hummingbirds like this always look like they are perpetually pissed off.

:nod: "To the victor go the spoils"... there is no second place in the hummingbird hierarchy... it is win or lose.
It is even more intense between the types of hummers: the Rufus hummingbird is one of the tiniest of them all and can outmaneuver even the slightly larger... and the damage they can inflict to Ruby throated hummingbirds, etc. is unbelievable.
Thank you for your comments!

I wouldn't be to surprised on the infliction one can do to another. Wild Nature is scary as hell sometimes, even with something as small as these hummers.
