Hummingbird Show

This summer we've been enjoying a group of hummingbirds that have been frequenting our feeder. There is one little guy who from what I've read is the "dominant male" because he seems to be the one that is always guarding and hovering around the feeder. He chases an hummingbird away that dares come in proximity to his feeder(which I fill with 1 part water 1 part sugar(boiled mixture,cool and serve). Once in a while though they don't listen and we get a neat shot like this:
These little animals are so fascinating you might even mistaken them for flies or butterflies at times because of their size and speed. There's been times where I've changed their feeder and have had them hovering within inches of my face. They will definitely be missed when they decide to migrate south for the winter.
