    I sat & waited for this little booger and I caught him in the pine tree! We call this guy "Meanie", because he chases all other hummers away from the flowers & feeders!

    The males are very territorial, even with their mate!

    What a handsome little fellow he is. He's so small but obviously has the heart of a lion to chase all comers away!! :stew2:

    A humming bird sitting still, Now that's a rare sight indeed. He is cute though.
