How exhilarating pics! I saw colonies only once in my life, in Havana, Cuba.

They are so common here - it's almost comical. They just run over each other!

We have the secret sauce - 4 parts water to one part sugar. Same as it ever was. Neighbors have been putting out more feeders, but brother and I regularly change and wash feeders. Makes a difference. Customer service, don't you know. We also have a history of a breeding site (red throated hummers are the only breeders in eastern US) here, so the speckled ones are juveniles, fresh from the nest. It will get crazier still - I hope I can keep up. These were taken in the late afternoon with speedlite assist.

It's almost impossible to catch all of them at once - too fast, too furious. Good movie title, yes?
