The different breeds, including Buff Tailed Coronet and Fawn Breasted Brilliant, can be seen with matching details on either side of their body.

These hummingbirds were spotted in Ecuador by 41-year-old Hymakar Valluri.

“The Buff Tailed Coronet are found in Ecuador, Columbia and Venezuela – this one is feeding on a hibiscus flower looking for nectar.

“The Fawn Breasted Brilliant is also called Lilac-Throated Brilliant.

“It has a glittery pink patch on its throat which makes it look beautiful and special.

“It is an amazing experience to photograph the hummingbirds – but it is a great challenge to capture them in flight.”
