This is the same Tufted Coquette I posted July 30:
but I thought it also deserved an August posting to iNat.

Probably one of the most incredible little hummingbirds I have ever seen. These birds are tiny, like a big insect, really. This male was perched near some flowers it was guarding and allowed me to get a number of shots.
Male seen in the early morning.
The Tufted Coquette ( Lophornis ornatus ) is a tiny hummingbird that breeds in eastern Venezuela, Trinidad, Guiana and northern Brazil. It is an uncommon but widespread species, which appears to be a local or seasonal migrant, although its movements are not well understood.
