Purple-throated Mountain-gem (Lampornis calolaemus) - 22Nov2016

This medium sized hummer is a real show stopper in the mountains of Costa Rica.  Both the male and females are gorgeous.  The following photos were snapped at the infamous Freddie Fresa's roadside garden across from the restaurant.

The male.

Female or immature bird.

My father showing me how tame this bird is, don't worry he did not touch it.
