This is an original 1963 color print by Rafael Montes de Oca of two members of the Eugenes Fulgens family, more commonly known as the Rivoli Hummingbird. With an average length of 112-125 mm., the crown of these birds is metallic purple, with a brilliant emerald green throat. The breast and central part of the belly is black. The Rivoli Hummingbird's geographical distribution is from southern Arizona to southwestern New Mexico, through almost the whole of Mexico and Central America as far as Panama. The pictured plant is Cattleya Aurantiaca, more commonly known as the Orange Cattleya, which can be found in Cordoba, Veracruz, and Chiapas, but has also been known as far west as Revillagigedo and Nicaragua to the southeast.
