*Male/female hummer flight competition*

Dec 7, 2007
Palm Springs,CA USA
I almost always see male Costa's hummingbirds in my yard but I hardly see female ones.
But when I was taking hummer shots, this female hummer( #2,3) showed up. She wasn't used to flashes,
so when I fired the flashes she flew away but in a few seconds,she came back again.
Though every time the flashes fired, she seemed to be a bit scared but she determined to stay
to get her food and she stayed around the flower for more than 10 sec. And when a male hummer showed up,
he always chased her away.
