Funny couple fight! Wildlife photography funny moment...

โ€œMy husband said he needed more space. So I locked him outside.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Ever happened to you? I guess not but I am sure you came this close to it happening a few times. This Blue-tailed bee-eater husband almost got kicked out of his relationship once... Here is the story....

Just leave me alone - she screamed!
My own click

Last winter, I went to my regular meadow, looking for some nice action clicks of blue-tailed bee-eaters hunting. Instead of seeing hunting, I got to see this family soap opera!

The lady bee-eater seemed to be sitting alone - in a huff. The husband was probably out frolicking with friends and she was obviously upset about being left all alone...

I am sure he is out drinking with buddies- said she
My own click

It is always a puzzle to me - the 'right' amount of presence required with our wives I mean. If we go golfing and disappear for the whole weekend, it is WRONG but if we stay at home and try to spend time with the good lady then also it is WRONG. "Get out of my hair", "Let me do my work", "Don't you have something else to do?" are just some of the responses we get to hear. How can a poor husband EVER be right?๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway - after a while, during which the lady bee-eater got increasingly annoyed, the male bee-eater slinked in and sat next to her Acting as if nothing had happened!
She ignored him completely for some frosty moments.

The frosty silence
My own click

The poor male took her silence to be a sign of "All is well". A big mistake!

As he attempted to turn towards her and chat her up, she exploded in a series of 'expletives' which would have even made a seasoned rowdy sailor blush! the poor male did not know what hit him. All he could register was it was best to 'teleport' himself away from his better-half - perhaps to some distant galaxy. He took off. All this happened in such a blitz that I could not even click and clicked the poor husband taking off - the good lady still screaming at him and swearing like a painted lady does when her customer refuses to pay her enough after the act!๐Ÿ˜€

This 'action' pic, therefore is my favorite as it speaks volumes about the couple's fight and is my entry for #SMAP 87. Here is the photo in it's full original form..

Couple fight and flight action ๐Ÿ˜€ - My entry for #SMAP 87

Hope you enjoyed seeing the pics. If they inspire you to spend time with the good lady and especially if you figure out the magic formula for the 'correct amount of time to be spent with wife', do comment and let me know. I am sure we can patent it and sell it via HIVE platform to become billionaires!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜

Dear @vm2904,
May I ask you to review and support the Dev Marketing Proposal ( we presented on Conference Day 1 at HiveFest?
The campaign aims to onboard new application developers to grow our ecosystem. If you missed the presentation, you can watch it on YouTube.
You cast your vote for the proposal on Peakd, Ecency, or using HiveSigner.

Thank you!

@arcange Hi. Sorry. I was traveling so did not have access to my active key. Hence the delay in supporting the proposal. I have supported it now.
Keep up the good work. I admire how committed you guys are to HIVE. My skills are limited but do feel free to ask me to help with something that I am capable of anytime

No prob. Thank you for your support @vm2904, really appreciate it! ๐Ÿ‘

Wrapping up my hive reading for the night and hunting for tags for my next post.
Great read. I imagine your rendition is as close to the truth as we'll get on the backstory of this couple.

Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement.

Oh my, this is soooo hilarious LOL.
I love the story, but I cannot give any advice ๐Ÿ˜‰
Marvelous shots of the couple. Bee-eaters here are very noisy and I can imagine how it may sound when she is shouting at him. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Awww. Come on. No advice ? I thought we were friends. I guess all wives stick together eh ? ๐Ÿ˜€
As always - thanks for all the appreciation

Hehe, women's solidarity. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hello! I love the pics. And the story you've made up with them it's so funny ๐Ÿ˜‚
The magic formula is an encrypted secret impossible to be figured out by husbands ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Ahhh. I knew it. You wives will never let the magic formula fall in any hubbyโ€™s hands. ๐Ÿ˜€

Haha!!! Of course, we won't :)

And I thought you were my friend. On my side โ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜”
Ha ha ๐Ÿ˜€

Haha! and I am your friend. But some things are top secret ๐Ÿคฃ

๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘ I guess I will never become a billionaire then and neither will you. ๐Ÿ˜€

This is such an awesome series of photos and a fabulous little story to go with it! The magic formula (as written from the female perspective) is pretty simple. Just make sure that she knows that she is always the priority in your life. ๐Ÿ˜

Thank you so much for sharing the female perspective. That sounds so simple but the male typically gets lost in finding out exactly how ๐Ÿ˜Š. I guess it is feasible though - speaking from personal experience since I have survived decades of married life so far. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hubby and I have been together for 16 years, married for 9. Somehow he has managed as well. Still love him with all my heart and cannot imagine my life without him!

Hubby sure is lucky ๐Ÿ˜€. Is he on Hive too? Perhaps I can get him to join the โ€˜magic formula hunter hubby groupโ€™ ๐Ÿ˜€

He isn't (yet). I have been trying to convince him to join. Especially with the new hobby that he is taking up, Blacksmithing. I don't know if I will be successful though. I may actually begin Blogging about it on his behalf. There are quite a number of people that would like him to stream his Blacksmithing journey on Twitch and make videos for YouTube as well. We will see how things pan out.

And yes, I am going to insist on before and after (progress) shots of the arm muscles I expect he'll rapidly develop, hahahaha

Congratulations @vm2904!
You raised your level and are now a Dolphin!

Youโ€™ve bought a smile to my face with this one. Nearly happened to me this week as Iโ€™ve brought Covid home from a work trip abroad and infected my poor wife with it. So your story resonated with me lol!
