    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     speedy01 says that one highlight of photographing the Rufus hummingbird is seeing the male hummingbird be over protective of its possessions, like the feeder. 'It goes after anything that tries to use it,' he says. He says he enjoys documenting birds, 'It is always such a pleasure to watch these tiny birds in action; they sure can do amazing things for their size,' he says. The fourth image in this set was selected as our Travel Photo of the Day on!
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    This male Rufus Hummingbird was very protective of his feeder. He kept vigil for the longest time on a branch nearby, chasing away any other hummer that dared coming close. While he was busy chasing, the other hummers took advantage and went for a drink! It was so funny watching all this happening.
