A couple more hummingbirds. Ecuador is the land of hummingbirds! The first one is a Booted Racket-tail Hummingbird. Note the fuzz on the legs.

Phenomenal shots, Archi. The first one is so unusual looking, yet so beautiful.

Nice photo, Robert! Is that an antenna on the rump? The pose looks like a female bird ready for mating :lol:

Haha! Yep great pose for something ;)
Def. an antenna, a falconer's bierd and I think they told us about 40K invested in that bierd from birth to end of training and they don't want to
loose. Like most here I'd rather image in the wild but we learned tons at the center, highly recommend.

I'd love to know how you get all these photos of fairy-wrens. Nearly every day I hear on my block what I'm fairly sure are red-backed fairy-wrens but I've never even seen, let alone photographed, one!
