It is the turn on the Hummingbirds, they proved to be a whole challenge to photograph at least in the air when hovering, they were abundant and always present, a few times I took position by a big group of blooming Heliconium growing on the way down to the river, and didn't have to wait long before a hummingbird would come to feed hovering on the nectar.
It came to visit two or tree flowers and all that in a few seconds before taking off again, no matter how I tried I didn't manage to get a reasonable shot, or there was a leaf or stem blocking the view, or I simply wasn't fast enough.
When they were sitting on a branch it was more doable but also then they were often high up on the tree in the shade.

cf. Many-spotted Hummingbird - Taphrospilus hypostictus
