Some Ecuadorian Hummingbirds and others...

We were up in the Cloud Forest above Mindo, staying at the Bellavista Cloud Forest Lodge...  Wow!  Soo many hummingbirds.

Awesome.   You must be carrying some heavy glass for these trips.  Those action shots of the hummingbirds are particularly cool.

Thanks!  The 100-400mm+camera weigh about 6-8 lbs total.  The camera backpack CAN get a little heavy ;)

We spent three days in and around Cuenca, Ecuador.  The weather was "variable" and on a wet Easter Sunday double decker bus ride, we almost had our heads taken off by low hanging wires!  Fun times.

Here are some of our shots:

1. Easter Parade
