  hummingbirds are popular in Costa Rica
by zrim

If you spend any time outdoors in Costa Rica you are sure to encounter more than a few hummingbirds. The buzz around gardens collecting necter to sustain their high-octane lifestyle. Fortunately, many hotels, restaurants and even national parks set out additional hummingbird feeders which contain pure sugar syrup. The hummers flock to the feeding station. Contrary to persistent rumor, I found that I was able to successfully photograph hummingbirds without using a strobe flash.
