Species: Fiery-throated Hummingbird | Location: Savegre, Costa Rica
We were on the last day and looking for quetzels. We stopped at another lodge for my guide to talk to other guides to determine where the quetzels were. While they were talking, I wandered out on a deck where there were several hummingbird feeders. The air was filled with all varieties of hummingbirds. They actually emptied the feeder in about 20 minutes. At any rate, the fiery-throated hummingbird was a new species for me. I tried to follow just one bird and finally got a picture just before it landed on a branch.

About The Photographer
I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
