Mashpi hummers - the rest

While Velvet-purple Coronet and Empress Brilliant were the rarest hummingbirds at Mashpi, they certainly weren't the only birds of interest.

Violet-tailed Sylph was a bird I worked most of the trip trying to get a shot that does the bird justice.  This one is good, but comes up short of really capturing the bird.

We only saw a couple White-whiskered Hermits, this was my best pic of this species

This is Purple-throated Woodstar, clearly appropriately named.

I'm not sure what this orange flower is, I photographed a Little Hermit at one in Costa Rica several years ago, but it's a nice contrast to the plainer Brown Inca.
