The Fury of a Thousand Suns by Nambroth The Fury of a Thousand Suns by Nambroth
In all of the animal kingdom, there exists one creature whose ire strikes fear into the hearts of any that rest eyes upon it.
Do not anger the mighty hummingbird, for they believe they are greater warriors than the most mighty of eagles, and their anger burns with the fury of a thousand suns.

Also, their language is composed entirely of swear words.

A quick and rough commission for :iconillucian: of a female rufous hummingbird. :)

I actually laughed when you said their language is composed on of swear words, think the other people in the computer room might think I'm a bit odd. I love this.

Wasn't the hummingbird one of the patron bird of an Aztec War God?

this sort of reminds me of a part in "Voyage of the Dawn Treader" by C.S. Lewis

I have Allen's hummingbirds which are closely related to the Rufus, those little monsters fight all day long over the feeder.

I love the color pallet used on this, but I love the description even more. It made me titter hardily, and the illustration itself is simply beautiful. I can easily see the hummingbird's persona being that as described, too!
