What's new? another hummingbird in flight!

Going into the pink flower for some nectar.
hand held

That's it will change the theme next time..guess you have seen enough birds
but so many varieties over there in Costa Rica...could give you a different type every day for a month...easily

thank you everyone for your comments also
