"Hey you - off my patch!" by 

“If I’ve told you once, I’ve told you a hundred times, there’s only room enough for one alpha male around here!”. This little thornbill regularly visits his reflection in the window and tries to hunt it off.
I have had to cover the window at times to prevent him from becoming too stressed.

    He IS a fine fellow – & despite his persistent lack of couth, he has some fine flowers to keep him company. Well done – love the composition.

  • Ta ever so Sheila…He doesn’t have much respect for the potted begonias, if you get my drift. :)
