IMG_9810 Purple-throated carib - Eulampis jugularis
With flash. Purple Throated Carib, I managed a few shots without flash but the light was poor. With flash the colours came out more, the red throat showed up for example, but when this bird is feeding on flowers, it suddenly catches the sunlight and there is a flash of intense colour. The wings often appear green.
