Violet Ear - Monteverde


Green Violet Ear Hummingbird

Green Violet Ear Hummingbird, Reserva Biológica Bosque Nuboso Monteverde, Costa Rica. Watching the bird over time, it consistently landed on this perch which allowed me to focus my attention there rather than run around, a process common with hummingbird photography. An oncoming thunderstorm, along with the dense jungle made the light difficult, as did the speed of the hummingbird. As a result, I used a fill flash to illuminate the hummingbird, in the process bringing out the colors of it's iridescent feathers.
