Oh my word Jim.... I think I've fallen in love with this guy!!!! He's quite stunning!

You've three beautiful pictures to show us today - and of species we don't see coming in too often.

It's wonderful to see you posting again.
You got a great picture of this beautiful and little bird, has been elusive to me i have just one photo when I was beginning with an old camera. Lucky you. Congrats !!
Thank you for everyone's kind comments. I have finally processed all my pictures from a 6 week trip to Ecuador last year. What a country!
Yes these guys are tough. Very dim light and they are so quick! I took over 200 pictures of this guy and discarded all but 5.
