[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
Hummingbirds are birds in the family Trochilidae, and are endemic to the Americas. They can hover in mid-air by rapidly flapping their wings 1580 times per second (depending on the species). They can fly backwards, and are the only group of birds able to do so.[1] Their English name derives from the characteristic hum made by their wings.

Hi Vera,
In Alagoas, this can only be one bird. Adult female Anthracothorax nigricollis (Black-throated Mango).

Hola Vera, es una interesante captura, noto al Humm un poco oscuro ,a pesar de una luz que no le era favorable sin embargo resulto un bello click.
