You cannot tell by looking at this little guy that he is MEAN.
Gorgeous but nasty when it comes to other hummingbirds.
When he flashes his throat colors he is even more beautiful.......ever tried to catch a hummingbird in flight with a camera that does not "get it" ?
That being said I love them...all of them. You can sit and watch a Mama bird come and literally "fill her belly" and watch said tiny tummy get bigger and bigger. Bless her lil heart. The Red Devil (male, 'natch ) chases all the other humming away.
