Let's face it. It is hard to get hummingbird shots that do not involve red syrup and plastic flower pods. So the feederless ones that have a tropical background are cherished by me. This one is taken near a feeder at a Butterfly sanctuary in Belize. In Central America Hummingbird feeders are like rush hour in America. The birds zoom and whirl around your head like little helicopters. It really is an amazing experience. But even with all those birds it is still hard to snap one on a branch. They go a mile a minute. I wish I knew what kind this red beaked one is. If anyone can enlighten me please do.
