Nature Through My Lens

A Chance Encounter

IMG_8190.jpg

Here’s something I’ve never seen before. Both of these Hummingbirds are very possessive of their territory. But here they are sitting a couple of feet apart in the same bush. The top one is a female Rufous (Selasphorus rufus) and the bottom one is a female Anna’s (Calypte anna.) Needless to say I was quite happy to get them together!

    That is certainly not normal behaviour for the Hummers.I’m glad you were ready with the camera to capture this.

    • Ruth, thank you! I was quite surprised to see them together and very happy to get the shot!
