Hummers in a huff

Photo: Features
Two hummingbirds, a Velvet-purple Coronet and a Buff-tailed Coronet, fight over a colourful Banana Flower in Mindo, Ecuador.   Both species are found in north-west South American, in Columbia, Ecuador and, in the case of the Buff-tailed, also in Venezuela.   Although not seen in the photo here, the Buff-tailed has a prominent feather feature on its thighs, where it displays puffy, white "boots".
