In deep meditation

Hummingbirds are busybodies in constant motion all the time or so it seems, flapping their wings at supersonic speeds of 50 beats/sec on average!  They are absolutely fascinating to watch, flying forwards and backwards with equal ease, and it is quite challenging to capture their stunts on camera!   But even hummingbirds have to rest periodically after expending all that energy.

About ten years ago, I came across this elegant Rufous tailed hummingbird displaying its brilliant colors at the foothills of Arenal volcano in Costa Rica, in blissful meditation!
