Flash's Aerial Ballet

The other Anna's and rufous hummers must be scouting out nesting areas. I've decided to call this new guy "Flash" because he likes to flash over to one feeder, back to the tree, then flash to the other feeder.

These were all photographed in very low light at about 7:45 p.m. with a 75mm lens. I usually shoot hummers with a 200-300mm lens, so I wasn't sure if I would get anything worthwhile.

I love the action in these images. At least a couple make Flash look more like a dragonfly on steroids. Too early for dragonflies but never too early for hummers.

Let me know if you think I should add any of these or others I photographed in April and March to my Hummer gallery.
