Ok, those are a couple of strange birds! :lol: I got territory protection going on big time here. I envy you and those pics I see with many hummers swarming a feeder.
Very nice couple of shots and congrats on having camera ready then.

Cool. Maybe they're siblings.

I agree that they might be this years siblings. The entire encounter lasted about a minute or so. I was quite lucky to be sitting outside with my camera when it happened. Life is normal again .... very territorial, running each other off.

Thanks to all for the views, likes, and comments.

Just a little fighting going on around here, but that's because they're migrating through and not spending time to defend the food. Just fueling up and moving on.
