Hi all. I was a regular on the forum for a short time last year, and then ran out of images to post! I've just got back from a month in Venezuela with quite a few videos and images which will hopefully be of interest.

Having looked on the galleries here, I think this is a Blue Doctor (Rhetus periander) though the white tips don't appear on the other images I've seen. Could it be a Dyson's Swordtail (Rhetus dysoni)?

Photographed in the hills behind Merida, NW Venezuela.

I've posted a video here on Vimeo too (the close up shots are at 1.20)

Rhetus dysonii. Rhetus periander would not have such a red bow ("U-like"), more separated spots.
