Now, Chuck...well, Chuck has a thing about bees, wasps, flies, all those things that fly and make a buzzing noise. He feels compelled to hunt them down and eat them, but he actually doesn't want to do this, so if given the option, if there is even one little tiny fly, he will go inside.
Now, a hummingbird, to Chucks eyes, is the mother of all buzzing flying insects. The stuff of NIGHTMARES!
We did not realise this until today when he started barking at them, and barking and barking. If one had been silly enough to come close, he would have definitely tried to eat it.
Fortunately, they weren't that stupid.
They are however remarkably hard to capture with your average point and shoot camera.
Especially with barky dog wailing away next to you,
the best I could do.
