Green Violetear (Colibri thalassinus cabanidis)
27 January 2009, Savegre Mountain Hotel, San Gerardo de Dota, Costa Rica Same details as previous. This photo shows the violet ear patch extending away from the face. It also shows the bluish tail with dark central band and a smudge of blue color in the middle of the chest suggesting it is probably a male. Panasonic DMC-LZ5 / Nikon FieldScope 3 / 30X WA hand-held (no adapter)
