Violet Sabrewing Hummingbird

Violet Sabrewing Hummingbird
Costa Rica has a reputation for immense biodiversity. On one rainy day within the Monteverde Cloud Forest I saw more species of hummingbird than I had seen in my entire life. The largest of the country's hummingbirds is the Violet Sabrewing, a beautiful yet aggressive species that will vigorously defend its territory.
