While observing the flower garden in my backyard from my kitchen, I noticed a lone hummingbird inspecting the flowers, not uncommon for this time of year although we do have a feeder set up. I got my camera to see if I could get some shots and set the camera to burst mode. In a matter of a second or two the second hummingbird flew into the picture and seemed to buzz the first hummingbird and was gone in a flash. When I examined the pictures, the one submitted was only a single picture.
