Mortal Combat!

Thank you again for sharing so many beautiful images, Cindy! The Aztecs of the classical period said that only the most courageous warriors and women who died in childbirth could reincarnate as hummingbirds. When I first read that bit of their mythology, I did not know about hummingbirds amazing aerial battles. Now it makes perfect sense!

Notice the hummer spearing another in the head, amazingly I have never seen a hummer seriously hurt from the sparring although I imagine they could be. I certainly hear the sound of their airborne impacts, and see the missing and displaced feathers.

This guy is waiting to spear the guy from above who is about to attack him! Hummingbirds move incredibly quickly, but when they are in attack mode they move at warp-speed.

You can see evidence of the airborne impacts in the ruffled feathers.

Some seem disproportionately harassed.

Others position themselves for advantangeous attack!

The majority though avoid the fray and remain untouched. I suspect their aerial evasion techniques are even more evolved than their attack skills. They are simply phenomonal fliers.

This is of course how I prefer to see the hummers! Peaceful and radiant.

Cheers to you from the occasionally bickersome, but always beautiful, Holler Hummers~
