Artist's Description


I searched many sites before locating a listing on Wikipedia which showed this beautiful hummer.
The Velvet-Purple Coronet (Boissonneaua jardini) is a species of hummingbird in the Trochilidae family. It is found in humid foothill forest on the West Andean slope in western Colombia and north-western Ecuador. Its highly iridescent plumage is striking, being largely bluish-purple below and on the crown, greenish-blue on the back, green on the upperwing coverts, and rufous on the underwing coverts. In poor light it may appear all black, except for the strongly contrasting white outer rectrices.
We spent hours watching up to 35 varieties of these fascinating creatures entertain us. This artwork is derived from a photograph taken November 20-21, 2012 at the Sachatamia Lodge in the rain forest of Mindo, Ecuador, South America.
