Prompt: Sir Hummingbird the Brave
prompted by: Andis, during Sketch Fest #38 (June, 2013)

Pencil on ACEO. Y'know, the way our Hummingbirds chase each other around and spar over nectar territory, I think they need some wee suits of armour!


mikka says: D'awwwww! (And yet, yes, they're vicious little critters, aren't they? I bet he took the plume in his helmet from someone he defeated in battle ...) ~ Reply?

     Mary Layton replied to this: LOL! Thanks, mikka! They're so funny to watch - we've got 2 juvenile males, and they chase each other constantly. We plant so much for them, and have 2 feeders available, but they can't seem to work out that if one goes to this side of the garden and one to the other, there's enough for both - they each want it ALL. Silly lads!

Andis says: Wonderful! He is ready for battle- ~ Reply?

     Mary Layton replied to this: Thanks, Andis! And, thanks for giving me an excuse to draw another hummingbird! I love the wee things!

Kir Talmage says: Charming! Especially like the headgear. ~ Reply?

     Mary Layton replied to this: Thank you ! :)
