Don't Make Him Angry!

I have posted before about the tiny tyrant that lives at the south west corner of my house. He is very fierce and chases all comers from his domain be they bird, make-believe or human.

One morning as I was passing 'His Lordship' was looking particularly angry.

Glaring up through the branches in a very focused manner

Then I realised why - someone had the AUDACITY to drink from his nectar feeder! Really!!!? What is the world coming to?

After several more very hard stares and a whole string of what I have to believe were hummingbird expletives, the little Verdin realised the error of it's ways and left the area.

Normal service has been resumed.

Thanks Kathie, this little terror gives me hours of entertainment :)

Celeste said...

You are so right Dianne, he never fails to make me smile.

Celeste said...

It does seem a little extreme sometimes doesn't it Michelle?

That's so funny Celeste. Thank you so much.... beautiful pix. And I'm envious of both those birds -- boy he really does look irate!
