The Blue-Throated Hummingbird, Lampornis clemenciae, is a species of hummingbird, a member of the Trochilidae family of birds.
The Blue-throated Hummingbird is fairly large for a hummingbird, with mature adults reaching 11.5 -12.5 cm (4½ to 5 inches) in length. The Blue-throated Hummingbird is bright green on the top of its body, fading to white on its belly. It has two white stripes on the sides of its head, with a black stripe in between which goes through its eye. Its tail feathers are black with large white tips. The male has a large vibrant blue throat patch, but the female lacks this, having a plain white throat.
The Blue-throated Hummingbird is native to woodland areas of central Mexico, although during the summer it sometimes frequents the wooded canyons along the borders of Arizona and Texas in the United States.
Conservation status: Least concern

This is how a hummingbird cools off in the hot summer heat. I have slowed down the video to catch the fast zoomer.
