Floofy Friday

Maybe this should be titled Foliage Friday?
Ah, this looks better.

So there I was, enjoying a nice sniff at this plant, when I was assaulted! A sassy little humming bird flew right up in my face. I was shocked and appalled. Mom started laughing (yes she has wildly inappropriate responses).

Yep, it was all fun and games till the humming bird flew right into Mom's face too! She was so startled that she stepped back in dismay.

Humming Bird 2 - Mom and Fin 0

Can you imagine the nerve? I must say I almost admire that level of sass - just not in a tweet. When I napped today, I dreamed of humming bird covered in gravy - it's small, but eats like a meal.

I can see that my work is cut out for me when the weather improves. The tweets are running amok. Sigh. So what is everyone up to this weekend? We hope you have a great time friends!

  3. Sorry Fin, but I can't stop laughing. The image of the little tweet fluttering right up to your face AND mom's is just too much. Yum, I think perhaps hummingbird coated with honey and roasted to perfection might taste good.....

  4. I am glad that hummingbird got your human too, Fin! I hope it comes back - you need to teach it a lesson!

  5. Hummingbirds are a bit in short supply here. Maybe cats were in the ascendant in neolithic times??!

    Austin is quite concerned when a buzzard flies in his face!!!

    Have a good weekend!!

  7. Hummingbirds covered in gravy, hehehe! Works for me! (Of course, before any tweet breathes his last, I would give him the last rites)

    Have a good weekend, Fin & Mom!

  8. Hummingbirds can be pretty nervy, but that is just amazing. We had one visit our feeder last night while Audrey and I and Mom and Dd were on the deck and it made little chirping noises as if it was annoyed we were there. We have seen ours hover to look through our windows, too.

    A hummingbird stayed right by the butterfly weed while Mommy planted it.

  22. HAHAHA...."small but eats like a meal." Gotta remember that one! Watch out for the hummers. Their wings move so fast they can cut through kitty fur.

    Just helping you guard the floof.
