Hummingbirds are notoriously difficult to capture in photos because they refuse to stay put for more than a second at a time. Well, lucky me. There's this little place right near Poas Volcano called Freddo Fresas, that serves up typical Costa Rican food and is famous for its strawberry milkshakes blended from super-sweet volcano strawberries. (Unfortunately, the milkshakes were made with powdered milk which gave it an off-flavor to me. The typical Costa Rican breakfast of gallo pinto was quite tasty, though.)
The garden across from their restaurant is utterly unique. Hundreds of hummingbirds come to the little pink feeders, as if drawn to the nectar served in this one place on earth. The wings flutter here, there, and everywhere, but, occasionally, the birds stop, sit at a tree, and watch me watch them.
