"This painting is a lighthearted look at the David-and-Goliath interaction of the small and swift against the big and slow. In this case, a rufous hummingbird pokes around a ponderous long-eared owl, forcing the unfortunate owl to realize that not only has his sleep been disturbed, but also his roost has been exposed to noisy little birds."
