Velvet-purple (left) and Buff-tailed Coronets - Mindo, Ecuador

A Velvet-purple Coronet (left) and a Buff-tailed Coronet fight over a prized flower. These are 2 of about 150 species of hummingbirds which live in Ecuador. These birds were photographed on a multi flash set up that we use on the tours that we lead. It allows the participants to get great action and flight shots of many species of hummingbird.
