Long-billed Starthroat

The day I took photos of yesterday's flower I was surprised and delighted to see this hummingbird come to feed from the same flowers. I wasn't prepared to take pictures of this fast bird so I cranked up the shutter speed and did the best with the lens that was on the camera. It was only after looking at the pictures that I could see the brilliant patch of blue on the top of its head and ruby color on the throat.
