Showdown at the Salmonberry Patch

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Cynthia Meyer

Male Rufous Hummingbird guarding his territory from a bee. The salmonberry bushes were just beginning to blossom and the flowers were few and far between. Both wanted what little nectar there was. The photo was taken in April, shortly after the first of the hummingbirds arrive from their winter homes.

Location: Tenakee Springs, Alaska, USA
