[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
From my trip to Ecuador.

The Green-tailed Trainbearers (Lesbia nuna) - also known as Little Long-tailed Sylphs - are hummingbirds found in western South America, specifically the following countries: Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Venezuela. They inhabit subtropical or tropical moist montanes, high-altitude shrubland, as well as heavily degraded former forest, as wel as in parks, bush-filled pastures and areas with hedges. They occur at elevations from 5,600 - 12,500 feet (1,700 - 3,800 meters). At higher elevations, their range overlaps with the related, larger Black-tailed Trainbearer (Lesbia victoriae). Their preferred habitats are subtropical and tropical heavily degraded former forest and shrubland; and to a lesser extent subtropical and tropical montane moist forest and high altitude grassland.These active hummingbirds are resident (non-migratory) throughout their range. They are often seen hovering at flowers at various heights.

I know the points are not you eat; and is not essential ... But anyway, Peter, I am concerned they have not rained the rave reviews for this wonder of photography, as have been all your series of hummingbirds.
What colleagues, we're distracted?
Also, I appreciate that you complete; the image base; of hummingbirds with all these beautiful species, which should especially thank all TrekNature. My feet multiply them by 100, to honor this work; full of art, beauty, balance and timing.

A big hug from Argentina
