Goldfinch under attack...

This goldfinch innocently wandered into a flower patch being guarded by a little broad-tailed hummingbird. The goldfinch stayed down in the bush, avoiding the hummer's dive bombing runs. After a few bombing runs the gold finch took off. The hummingbird was so incredibly fast that I couldn't catch it in the frame as it flew by at lightning speed.
