Costa Rica---Birds, Animals and Landscapes - Crowley-Nature-Images

This beautiful hummingbird is a Green Brilliant that perched for a couple of seconds in the trees near Catarata Del Toro Waterfalls. Phyllis was captivated by these beautiful birds, not only in flight, but when they perched. While perched they would spread their wings, shake their feathers, look from side to side or simply rest in an elegant pose like this Green Brilliant. The challenge was working quickly enough to capture these poses because they perched for only a few seconds.
