Artist Statement:
The Black-breasted Puffleg (Eriocnemis nigrivestis) is a critically endangered hummingbird, found in the mountains of Ecuador. We observed several in the Yanachocha Preserve in 2004. It is a dazzling jewel of iridescence with its bright white pantaloons. Painting this bird evoked memories of that personal encounter.
