The goldfinch is checking out the hummingbird feeder and the hummingbird is not at all happy about it!
Happy Silly Tuesday!

The larger size is imposed but, quiet there will be food for all of them.
This is an outsetanding shot (for me, 5*)

An exellent capture of the hummingbird poised to move in. A difficult photo to take. Well done.

@Don: Thanks Don! Actually it was by mistake. I was taking a picture of the goldfinch and then when I looked at the picture, the hummingbird was there in it.
