This is not the same hummingbird as in the other photos. In fact, this guy chased that one off! He redeemed himself today by posing like he's the best looking Costa's in the world! I'm really impressed that I was able to obtain these shots. There's a lot more @ ak-azbirder.weebly.com/blog/not-the-timeline-series-xtreme-costas-hummer-pix. As you can see, he also has unusually long gorget extensions. Can some or one of these end up in the opus?
