My Sunday Photo: A Purple Beauty

Last year on our trip Costa Rica, we visited the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve. Our guide told us to keep a look out for the spectacular Violet Sabrewing Hummingbird, and we were lucky enough to see this one perched for just a moment.The male is about 15 cm long, one of the largest hummingbirds in the world.

  1. You were soooo lucky! And what a stunning beauty he is. A great capture – must be difficult since he could not have been still for very long. Well done.
