This is an original 1963 color print by Rafael Montes de Oca of a group of Archilochus Colubris, more commonly known as the Ruby-throated Hummingbird. With an average length of 81 mm., the tail of these birds is slightly forked and purpleish-black in color. The throat is an iconic ruby red. Breeding in the eastern parks of North America, from Labrador to Florida, and in Mexico during the winter, the Red Throated Hummingbird tends to stay near to coastal regions during the colder months of the year. The pictured orchis is Epidendrum paniculatum, more commonly known as the Paniculate Epidendrum, grows in the region of Orizaba in Veracruz, and also near Xicotepec de Juárez, and flowers in the late spring and early summer.
