Fiery-throated Hummingbird

Panterpe insignis


This is a Fiery-throated Hummingbird from our October trip to Costa Rica. The weather pattern we experienced during the trip was generally sunny mornings with storms forming an hour or so before sunset. For this reason we had great birding during the day but we only had two evenings with a pretty sunset. This one was at the very end of the trip up in the mountains where we saw tons of these beautiful hummingbirds and I got my only silhouette photo of the trip.
