They bring new meaning to "a quick sketch" - 2 seconds is pretty much the maximum pose for a hummingbird.  You have to try to blink and photograph the image in your mind.  But fortunately if you're near a feeder, the birds will be back for another meal every minute or two.  Besides freneticness, I think the high-sugar diet promotes aggression - I watched the one adult male try to chase everyone else away, the adult females chase the juveniles, the bigger juveniles chase the litter ones, and the littlest one chase bees.
