I just feel like 'Dancing'

By Lillian  
This bright coloured Hummingbird, called Green Violet ear Hummingbird
was having a great time flying in the bright coloured flowers

This is one of tree shots on my last day in Costa Rica in the Cloud Forest
hope that you like this offering

Thanks for all who looked at the kingfisher and to Peter for your UA

A wonderful shot for both colour and subject matter.
And at 1/500 sec. you have managed to freeze that very fast wing action.......I'd have expected you'd have needed a much faster shutter.
The greens of the plumage looks great against the purple flower heads.

Love the back view, Lillian.
I've only just got around to viewing this, so was fascinated because I have done a back view of my hummingbird sculpture, too.
