Birds on crack

I know that hummingbirds can be fast little things, but this guy is ridiculous. I am fairly certain it is a Rufous Hummingbird, and even with three feeders in the yard, he feels obligated to be the bully. 
He sits in the trees and watches for other hummingbirds and then dives bombs them. That seems to be common around almost any feeders.

He is colorful enough that I wanted a picture of him sitting in a tree. My problem is that when he is sitting in a tree to watch, he moves about every 3 seconds. Branch to branch.  Tree to tree.  This is one hyped up hummingbird! 

I will get a good picture of him eventually.  After all, I know where he lives.
