@Vachel: Thank you! I'd call it lucky timing. Those little suckers are fast, but I chased them around. You can imagine the joy within the Costa Rican hummingbird community ("Oh, no. Here comes that human, again!").
Darn good shot... Colors, bird, and foliage very pleasant to see!

It almost looks as if he's looking straight at you, as if to be saying, "Hello there, Bookfool. Welcome to my world!"
