Any help identifying this little beauty is very much appreciated. Seen, singing away with a real melodious song (sadly not captured) while walking in the Dinamos, wooded valley to the South of Mexico City on 22 November 2020. Sadly I only have frontal shots so keeping my fingers crossed it’s enough to ID.

Thanks,
Gracie

Looks like a Mexican Violetear (Colibri thalassinus). They are very vocal and like to sit like this, on the other side of trees and branches, often making them difficult to spot and get good photos of.
