|Backfield in Motion|
Looking out across the lush purple blossoms dotting an alfalfa field. I could barely believe my eyes.
With thousands upon thousand of blossoms to choose from, two hummingbirds sparred over the right to the entire field! Zooming here, then there, it was difficult to discern which bird was defending, which was invading.
The territorial, greedy little birds warred on, taking their fight to the nectar feeder. I’m not sure whether it has the angry hum of their beating wings or a nanosecond of visual recognition. But I heeded the warning, and quickly pulled back as they flashed by.
