Being the worlds smallest hummingbird and hyperactive it is hard to get a good shot, but this is what I managed with my short visit.

He seems impossibly tiny! Nice captures!

We first thought they were butterflies that were very fast. My wife got her first picture of one while photographing another bird and that's how she discovered them.

Awesome. I've never had the opportunity to capture a humming bird. You've done well to catch these from what I've heard.

Not sure I can even imagine how difficult these are to get ... perhaps similar to a dragon fly?

Love the metallic green colour in that first shot.
