Costa Rican Hummingbirds

I picked up my Nikon D7000 just a short while before leaving on a trip to Costa Rica.

I had a few walk abouts with the new camera, but scarcely knew more than how to turn the camera on before we left on the trip. By the grace of the camera I still got some great shots.

One of our great experiences was going to a cafe in the forest, the Monteverde Hummingbird Garden, that had a number of hummingbird feeders.

Hummingbirds of many colours I had never seen before or since were taking advantage of the feeders.

Wish I had known what I was doing ... I could have caught many more decent shots.

Regardless, a wonderful experience.
