And I thought Cyrano had a problem! Great shot! (I'd like to see the flowers this guy gathers nectar from.)
Wonderful shot Tom!
I was also at Guango Lodge, but it was in July this summer!
Here's one of my best shots of the Sword-billed Hummingbird:

What an amazing creature. Are these rare? I ask because I don't see photos of them very often. The flash is a bit strong in this one but other than that, it's a great shot.
