This is an image of a female green crowned wood nymph.  They are quite a beautiful little hummingbird and are found in the humid forest and tall second growth from eastern Panama thru western Colombia and Ecuador down as far as Peru.
We did not see many of this species on our trip but there are so many species and the coloring from male to female varies so much that it is difficult sometimes to know just what you are looking at for sure. Definitely a big learning experience.
