Cinnamon Hummingbird in Zericote Tree
Amazilia rutila

  • 1
Zericote (Cordia Dodecandra) or as the Maya call it, Chakopte, is a versatile tree of Belize.
It provides blossoms all year long so the little hummer stays the year round.
I'm not good at shooting hummingbirds , they move to fast., but i recently discovered the 'Limit' button on my auto focus lens and its helped tremendously.

I think that's an amazing shot. Hummingbirds are one of the 'fastest' animals on the planet [not necessarily a measure of distance], I think the special average is something like 1260 wing beats per minute. All things considered it's a fantastic shot. The more you shoot the more you learn.
