Rufous-tailed Hummingbird

The Intruder

Viewed 6 Times

This shot was also taken from our balcony in Mindo, EC. I placed sugar water in the flower and soon a multitude of hummingbirds were coming. This shot looks flashed (it was not) and also looks like birds were Photoshopped into the picture (they were not). 4 birds, 3 different species. The three on the left (Rufous-tailed Hummingbird, and Green Thorntail (female) did not take kindly to the intrusion of the White-whiskered Hermit on the right. This confrontation deteriorated quickly.
I moved slightly from the previous shot to get a different POV. The shot has been cropped slightly from R and bottom; the BG has been darkened, de saturated and slightly blurred.
