Hummer Attack

Species: Rufous Hummingbird | Location: Grand Staircase Escalante, USA

Taken at the feeders in the Grand Staircase, visitors center there was huge competition for places at the feeder. This immature male (the bird above) decided to bully all the others out of the way to gain access to the feeder. In his way were many other hummers including this unfortunate female who quickly realized he was "a pain in the neck".

About The Photographer

An avid birder from the age of 11 I am a Brit who, due to work, has moved to the US. Luckily Texas offers many avian subjects and photo opportunities and I spend my spare time chasing that "perfect" shot. Forty years on I am still searching
