Ruby-topaz hummingbird in bright sunlight. [I believe this is a ruby-topaz hummingbird (Chrysolampis mosquitus); picture taken on Bonaire on 2010-12-03; as per the Internet information I found, there are only two species of hummingbirds on Bonaire, of which one is "iridescent, brilliant red crown and an orange-gold throat" and the other "deep green" (emerald hummingbird, chlorostilbon mellisugus).]
