Bye Bye Hummers

I took these photos last week when I was drawn outside to watch the hummingbirds fighting over the red flowers below.  These beauties are Rufous Hummingbirds.

They went on and on with their tussle, even though there was a feeder not 10 feet away.

Just last night I made some more hummer food even though I hadn't seen one for 24 hours.  Just in case there was a straggler who might be hungry.  No takers today though.  I'll leave it up in case one comes in from the north, but I do think that means fall is really on it's way.  Hummer season is only so long here.
