Dancing Anna's

On Tuesday July 24 there was a male Anna's Hummingbird in my garden that spent the better part of 2 minutes snatching small flies from mid-air. The flies had recently hatched from my pond and were swarming above it in a warm beam of evening sunlight. The Anna's simply darted around plucking them off one by one. By my count he caught 30-40 individuals.
