Spoils of War

I was up at sunrise and it is going to be a beautiful day. The Little Lake Valley down below was filled with fog which will burn off quickly. I was trying to get a few more hummingbird images. There was one male Anna's Hummingbird that was guarding the feeder with a vengeance. He was perched on my light stand and would dive off and attack any other hummingbirds that came anywhere near by. After one brutal skirmish that he knocked another hummingbird almost to the ground he came back with a feather he had plucked from his hapless victim. His trophy from the battle. It looks like it's not that easy to be a hummingbird! May you have a wonderful day and God bless, chris Both images were created with a Canon 7D mkII and a Canon 100-400IS v.1 lens on a Manfrotto Tripod with a bogen ballhead. #TeamCanon


  1. Wow, I didn't know they would be that aggressive. Great images.

  2. Thank you Shelly for looking in and commenting. This morning when I walked out there two of them were locked together fighting. They went all the way to the ground and then back up into the air fighting still hooked together.
