Dogfight Above the Petunias

Two ruby-throats got into it this afternoon above the petunia planter. They are very territorial and soooo feisty. Took off in different directions.

In the garden, the "butterfly bush," now blooming, is very popular with the hummers as well as the butterflies, and the bees are also attracted.

Significant Other took the photo late this afternoon after the dogfight. A bird has got to get some energy for the next confrontation.

It takes a lot of time and effort to maintain a garden, but the payback is wonderful, don't you think?
