Waterski-ing hummingbird

I found this video (among my old Peru pics) of Purple-collared Woodstars coming down to bathe at the tiny pool connecting ponds at the lodge at Chaparri, northern Peru (digiscoped video).

About 11 seconds in, one of them comes sliding in from the left, gliding across the surface like a waterskier. Check it out.
