Big Green Bumblebee

    Newer Older

    A male Green-crowned Brilliant, a hummingbird species found from Costa Rica to Ecuador. They are quite common around feeders in the area and I remember seeing some of the same in Ecuador a few years back. This guy was one of dozens of hummingbirds, representing a whole variety of species, hanging around some feeders in Selvatura Park.

      well, actually the ones we see here are less colorful. I think the ruby throated hummingbird makes it up here. not sure which others.

      Hi! I do like this one better than the previous shot. Why? It's simply brilliant to see those creatures flying and the motion blur gives a nice impression of the incredible speed. The background here is just right to bring out the colors!
