Swarms of Hummingbirds

After seeing the birds flying around a few days ago, we’ve noticed that they swarm right around dusk. The last three nights it’s looked like a swarm of bugs overrunning the feeder with 10 or more birds all coming in for a last drink before night falls. They ever look somewhat cooperative, sometimes taking turns drinking from one flower without obvious contention.

I actually got some pictures this time, standing 3-5 feet away. They don’t really pay a whole lot of attention to me, though I’m not sure that they like the flashes.
