Hi everyone,


I thought some of you might enjoy seeing some of the tropical delights I photographed during my recent birding tour to Trinidad & Tobago that I led for NatureScape Tours. Ten days and over 200 species made for a really fun trip and I'm looking forward to next year's tour!

One of the more spectacular hummingbirds of the world, it's easy to see why this species was named after two gemstones.

"The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer; but when the last individual of a race of living things breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again." (From William Beebe's "The Bird: Its Form and Function," 1906)
