Green Hermit Hummingbird

Green Hermit Hummingbird, near La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Costa Rica

We stopped at a little restaurant / roadside stand built out over a sharp drop beside the road just beyond the La Paz Waterfall Gardens in Costa Rica to look for the Emerald Toucanet which frequent the feeders there. We saw lots of tanagers, and a rarely seen ground dove, but no Toucanets. This is Green Hermit at a ornamental banana flower. Costa Rica is attempting to root this invasive plant out, but it is apparently attractive to both humans and hummingbirds. Sony RX10iii at 600mm equivalent. Program mode. 1/250th @ ISO 640 @ f4. Processed in Polarr.
