The White-vented Plumeleteer is a good-looking large hummingbird. The male is mostly green with a deep blue tail feathers and fluffy white vent feathers.
The female is a bit more difficult to identify - I think the bottom photo is one.
These were seen in the Canopy Tower and Valle de Anton in central Panama.
