    Oh, WOW! This is wonderful, David! Love the light burst. It reminds me of the male ruby-throated hummingbirds we have in our yard. They are very aggressive and fly at each other and often look like your image – beak to beak! They get so immersed in their little battles that they have almost flown right into me or my husband on several occasions. They come back every year and we really enjoy them. Some years there are so many of them, it looks like bees swarming on the feeders.

  • Thanks very much for your fave and comments, Peggi!! You are right about their aggressive nature in real life, and admittedly the plumage here probably suggests two males, but that wasn’t the “Hallmark Card” idea I had in mind :o))) – barrowda
