Rufous-tailed Hummingbird

Rufous-tailed Hummingbird

So, over the last two months I have worked my way through most of my worthwhile hummingbird pictures from a few days spent in Costa Rica. It is amazing to me that there are 11 hummer species we photographed - maybe one or two more we saw but didn't get pictures of. Some are from the lowlands in the rain-forest, some from the cloud-forest highlands and some like this rufous-tailed were seen at thecoast.

I think this brings to an end my series for now - there are a few more but they are almost duplicates so I I may come back to them later. I end this streak with one of my two favorites. The Porter Weed that the hummer was drinking from was at a great angle, the Rufous-tailed presented me with a nice profile and the flowers behind made for a wonderful background.

Hope you enjoyed my hummers in this sequence half as much as I enjoyed capturing them.
