I'm standing waiting for The Guy's big water trough to fill up. I see a hummingbird hovering about 15 feet up in the air, just hanging there. Then he suddenly zooms straight upwards until I can not see him, at least 40 feet up. Then just as fast, he swoops straight down to the ground & pulls out in a curve just above the ground to end up hovering in about the same place where I first saw him. He hovers & then sweeps upwards again, down again, curves again & back to hang place. He did this for nearly 15 minutes without doing anything else until he finally went & sat on a bush for a while.
So, what was *that* about?
