Red-legged Honeycreeper

Let the girls have a moment

In most of the bird world, males are colored to stand out and females are colored to blend in. From an evolutionary standpoint, makes sense. There are a few birds though, that even though the females may be subdued, they are beautiful in their own right. IMO, these are two of those. Closely related, the Shining Honeycreeper and Red-legged Honeycreepers, live in Central and even into South America. These two were photographed in Costa Rica only a few seconds apart.
