Stripe-tailed Hummingbird (Eupherusa eximia) flying and feeding on a flower in Costa Rica.

Part 5/6 of my month down in Costa Rica leading a few photography workshops.

We had some really nice opportunities throughout the tours and many wonderful images were made. Costa Rica is one of those countries that is just so pleasant to visit.

After leaving the Quetzal behind the final stop for my first tour was in the foothills of the Caribbean slope.

This area is famous for some really stunning little hummingbirds including the Snowcap.

Green-breasted Mango (Anthracothorax prevostii) flying and feeding at a flower in Costa Rica.

Also in this area we spent a few afternoons doing some very productive multi-flash hummingbird photography and had some good luck at the fruit feeders. Add in a day trip to a nearby lagoon and we had loads to keep up busy clicking away.
