Wire-crested Thorntail (Discosura popelairii)

I took this photo of a ‘pointy at both ends’ Wire-crested Thorntail (Discosura popelairii) whilst visiting the Wildsumaco lodge in Ecuador. As this male was looking directly at my camera, the full green iridescence of his head feathers shows up nicely. As always with my hummingbird photos, no flash was used.
