Canivet's Emerald Hummingbird
Photographer: Marian Herz
Location: Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Story: 
We had just arrived at Solimar, a private reserve in Guanacaste. The time was early afternoon. My guide had told me about the emerald hummingbird local to this area. I set up my lens and tripod on the patio of the main lodge. We had just moved inside for lunch when the guide announced that an emerald was on the foxtail flowers. Luckily the camera was ready and I was able to get the shot.
