Ruby-throated hummingbirds

Archilochus colubris


The females definitely seem to be the ones "who wear the pants" in the hummingbird world! Although there were still a few males around (most have already headed south), they were chased off whenever they tried to feed.


Ruscin Cave, Dickson TN


We set up the camera on a tripod with several speedlights and waited for the hummers to oblige.
