[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a Ruby-topaz Hummingbird (Chrysolampis mosquitus) from Tobago.

On a feeder you can often see this species as one of the more aggressive ones chasing away others from the feeder even though there is plenty of space for all.

The photo is from The Adventure farm quite close to Plymouth on the road to Arnos Vale.

Hello Bengt,
What a gorgeous hummingbird you have posted today, it is quite the present to view on Christmas morning here in Ohio. I love it's iridescent golden throat and rufous colored tail. Captured perfectly in fine detail and exposure is right on the money. Great job Bengt!!
