Presenting all sides, this Snowcap hummingbird visited vervain flowers in Costa Rica at Rancho Naturalista lodge, which is one of the few places where one can see this rare hummingbird.  In late afternoon it bathes in a stream near the resort, an enchanting show.   Many ecotourist dollars have changed hands because of this little sprite of a bird.
