It is the season when the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds begin to head south. That means very intense activities at feeders and around blooming things. The little male that has guarded Mr. Ken's feeders all summer may have already headed south. Now we seem to have a lot of females and/or juveniles tanking up. One female has claimed my cypress vines and our hanging basket, which still boasts many petunia blossoms. She's a feisty one! Here are some pics:
Nectaring on the cypress vines
"I like this place!"
"I shall claim it for my very own"
"I thought I saw another hummingbird."
It's on! (those are two hummingbirds...trust me)
Fiercer than eagles!
The last of the summer's Super Moons, this one was brilliant over Ohio!
