Hummingbirds are hard for me - so fast that I can rarely get a reasonable photograph. When perched, of course, it's easier and then sometimes interesting things are captured - like the sunlit puffed out fine feathers in the first white-necked jacobin photo or the long-billed hermit with open beak or flexed wings or the tiny white mites at the base of the beak of the male bronze-tailed plumeleteer.
