Sparkling Violet-ear by perubirder Sparkling Violet-ear by perubirder
The hummingbird species I see most often :), the only problem is that it chases away other species... :p

Sparkling Violet-ear / Orejivioleta iridiscente, Cusco, Perú.

There are about 130 species of hummingbird in Peru, I love them :). From what I've seen in photos, you have many other beautiful birds up there!

Thanks :D.

If you like hummingbirds, I finally got a pic of the one that this one chases often - and I think it's more beautiful than the above - will upload this week :)
