Guianan-streaked Antwrens are those small fast moving and shy birds in Kabalebo. A mouthful but that is how you best describe them. First you will notice some movements in the thick growing bushes and suddenly one small black and white bird will jump out. I followed this little bird for a while and while he was jumping from branch to branch he managed to grab a little snack too along the way.
The Black-eared Fairy has a funny way of hovering. They are almost in horizontal pose when they are right in front of a flower or blossoming tree. But it could also be that it was in the moment. The Black-eared Fairy seldom gives me enough time to take my shot.
When I took this shot of the Fork-tailed Woodnymph, I accidentally shot the little bee too. A nice way to show you how little the Woodnymph is. Also you can see why they are called Fork-tailed, just check the tail.
This bird reminded me again why I don't take long distance hike. It was already late in the afternoon when we heard the antbirds calling. This one in particular was hopping nearby from branch to branch. Dense spot and poor light. But because I wanted to take a photo of him so bad, I really had to make some effort to succeed. It took me at least 30 minutes to get this photo. Most of the time I was just turning with my camera from left to right and sometimes I even made a full circle. In the end I was drenched in sweat, burned some calories but I was content. Afterwards we had to move a bit faster because it started to get late too.
