                                            Mystery Birds and Butterflies

 

The following are photos of hummers that I don't recognize, and butterflies that I have no idea as to what they are, so I would appreciate any input!

 

 

This was taken at Yanacocha.  Any ideas?

 

            We kept seeing a hummer that looked somewhat like a Tyrian Metaltail, but could it have been just an odd-looking Buff-tailed Coronet??

Incredible moth at the lodge! (Looked like a giant version of our Io Moth!)
