The Guard Returns

DSC_0324

The Guard is back.  It was gone for a week or so.  During its absence an adult male Ruby Throat took over the Guard’s territory.  No more!  The Ruby Throat flies in the other direction when he sees the Guard on duty.  Besides dealing with all the other hummingbirds, the Guard has had to chase big bumble bees away from its food source and had an altercation with a dragon fly that decided to take over the guard post.

  2. Sounds like a gutsy little guard.
