Hummingbird and squirrel
Photographer: Dawn Wilson
Location: Rocky Mountain National Park
Story: 
I travel to Rocky Mountain National Park at least once a month to photograph wildlife. The day I captured this scene was a great day with lots of wildlife viewing and great photo opportunities. So many that I forgot I photographed this short episode. As I was driving up to Bear Lake, some movement out of the corner of my eye caught my attention. Turned out to be this hummingbird attacking this squirrel. I don't know what the squirrel did but the hummingbird was not happy. The experience only lasted a few minutes with the squirrel finally retreating.
