Normally I won't post feeder shots but I've never seen this. First shot is keeping an eye on the attacker.

I have seen this a lot in Colombia - but normally not near the feeder and I sadly have never photographed it.
Wonderful photos.

What a great action series. I've never witnessed anything like that with hummingbirds.

They are extremely territorial birds, so this isnt uncommon. My in-laws have one that sits in the tree the feeders hang from and it drives away anything else that comes close.
