Thanks.
I was watching my hummingbird feeder when two females had a knock-down-drag-out fight over access.
Literally, they were 'rassling on the deck.

In typical humming bird fashion it was over in seconds.

I've always wondered what that would look in slo mo.
They left two feathers. :)

Of course you wear your special hummingbird-watcher hat:



Alas, no h-birds in our Old World. We have to be content with hawk moths (fascinating beasties):

Are you talking about the hawkmoth? Because it's not actually a bird, it's a moth.

Yea, but he's caught many live ones. Most of which had to be eradicated with antibiotics and/or corrective surgery. :)
