Green thorntail (male front), Milpe Bird Sanctuary, Ecuador
I was initially a bit puzzled by this photos, but it just happens to be an angle where few to none of the characteristics of this species show, except for the thorntail, somewhat out of focus. Note the crowned woodnymph in the background. Even out of focus its stunningly vibrant.
The green thorntail is a small hummingbird that is a resident breeder from Costa Rica to western Ecuador. It occurs at middle elevations from 700–1400 m but may descend lower early in the wet season. In Costa Rica and Panama it is confined to the Caribbean slopes.
