Fiery-throated Hummingbird in Costa Rica
On a previous trip to the San Gerardo de Dota area in the mountains south of San Jose, i had two quick glimpses of the beautiful Fiery-throated Hummingbird and I was hoping for better luck this trip.
An afternoon visit to the gardens of the Quetzal Paradise Mountain Lodge proved to be just the right thing.
Although this image doesn't show the incredible throat colors, I like the detail and color in this perched bird.
