FRIDAY'S HUNT and WEEKEND REFLECTIONS - Costa Rica

It is time for Friday's Hunt and Weekend Reflections and I have started to upload and edit (at last) my videos I took in Costa Rice.  Today we have the letter H, Simple and Green and this video has all of those in it.  Try and watch until the end as there are close ups there.

The SIMPLE beautiful GREEN – crowned Brilliant HUMMINGBIRD.

This trip to Costa Rica was in January/February 2016 and I took 221 videos clips and thousands of still (none of which I have edited yet) and I am ploughing through my videos as we speak so if you are  patient with me I think you may be in for a real treat over time.  The bus below is what we travelled around the countryside in for 16 wonderful days with a fabulous driver who actually was a guide in his own right but we also had a guide and a leader.  A trip to remember and over 300 new birds seen! There is a REFLECTION in the bus windows.  


I probably will have more of Costa Rica to share with you next week but it will be a slow process to get all these videos and stills edited.

Many thanks for visiting and also for all your comments.

  1. In the video, these look like large hummers! So beautiful. WOW, amazing how many new birds you saw! I have seen maybe six new ones this summer and felt pretty good about it. But 300 is astounding! Your still picture is gorgeous.

  9. Coming here from Weekend Reflections.
    Love your hummingbird video! They are so beautiful. I put out 3 feeders, and so far I've seen 3 max. The one who discovered the feeders first is always shooing the others away. They are smaller and not as colorful. Still, they're mesmerizing to watch.

  10. I love the hummingbird! I have just recently seen a few out my window. I've missed them all summer. Good luck with all the editing. It's a lot of work. Thank you so much for joining Friday's Hunt. Have a great week!

  11. Wow, that is a stunning hummingbird. We only have the one species here - the ruby-throated. It is also green, but not as green as the one from Costa Rica! How lovely to be able to travel there.
