photographing and learning about wildlife
Teeny-tiny bundle of iridescent green feathers and an out of all proportion inordinately long, reddish coloured beak with a black tip. This species can be distinguished by its straight, bright red bill with a black tip.
Hotel grounds in Guadalajara, Mexico. It vibrated its body as it sang...never seen anything like this before. Well, never seen a Hummingbird before. We do not have them in India. As a kid I thought the Purple sunbird was a hummingbird because it could hover!
These photos were taken on my last day in the Hotel...I would go back in a jiffy...just 4 plane rides away ( so may be just wishful thinking.) . It made me so happy to get a usable shot. Had seen this species earlier but was so excited that all I had managed were blurry shots.
