Green-crowned Brilliant

Green-crowned Brilliant female, La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Costa Rica

Back to Costa Rica for another neglected image from my October visit. This is a female Green-crowned Brilliant Hummingbird from the La Paz Waterfall Gardens on the mountain rim above San Jose and the central valley on our way over the mountains to Selva Verde. I saw several female Brilliants in the mountains of Costa Rica, but I don’t remember seeing any males. That gives me something to look forward to on next year’s Point and Shoot Nature Photographer trip to Costa Rica in December. Sony RX10iii at 600mm. Program mode. 1/250th @ f4 @ ISO 640. Processed in Polarr.
